Workshop: Kelly Jayne Jones on Monday 21st May 2018
As part of her Outlands tour with Matana Roberts, commissioned artist Kelly Jayne Jones is leading a series of group workshops; sharing the methods, approaches and inspirations present within her sound making practice. Taking inspiration from John Zorn’s 'Game Pieces' the workshops will adopt an experimental and collaborative approach to composition, with participants drawing upon a range of objects, methods, activities and processes - accompanied with a focus on mindfulness techniques that consider what it is to create sound together. Exploring the spaces within and between improvisation and composition, as a means of collective creative expression, workshop participants will engage in processes of communal creativity, inspiring interpersonal transformation as a political act.
The workshop is free to attend but spaces are limited. Please only sign up if you can definitely attend, and please do get in touch if circumstances change so that others can be added to the list.
Kelly Jayne Jones makes use of varying combinations of prepared recordings, text, rocks, found sounds and flute. Her work beckons a tussle with uncertainty, inviting exposure and vulnerability in performance, chasing experiences that open our chasms within, without restraint. Searching for humble principles of growth; physis; sound, connecting with others in the same space/ moment, customary experimental play, with threads and beads of improvisation and interactivity. Kelly has facilitated workshops at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, and Manchester’s Brighter Sound Libraries project with young adults among others.
