[ _________ ] Orchestra is a workshop aimed at making participants closer to the concepts at the basis of 20th century music through active participation. The group selects the main theme of the workshop and completes its title (the pictures for example are of a [Relaxing] Orchestra), then students are taken in a journey of discovery of composition approaches and recording techniques.
They are first introduced to the changing concepts of sound, noise, music, and then learn about how the roles of composers, musicians and audience changed over the 1900s.
Finally, they brainstorm and elaborate on the main theme, then record their own samples, then compose a piece of music, mainly adopting a musique concréte approach, manipulating the very samples they had recorded.
[ _________ ] Orchestra workshops were held several times and let hundreds of students experiment with the power of sound.
