Mukai - Improvisation Workshop
27th April 1.30 - 4.30pm
Friends Meeting House, Ship St, BN1 1AF
'We need no
genre! No technique! No borders!’ We're excited to bring Chie
Mukai's world renowned improvisation workshop to the UK. Sharing
experiences from thirty years of site-specific performance and improvisation,
the workshop continues a teaching practice begun in 2001. It is
open to all practitioners of sound and movement regardless of level
- 'Beginners, therefore, can be fine artist here as far as they
have will and inventive sensitivity to feel the energy on the spot.
Everybody who shares this direct art and time andspace, plays the
important role in this activity.'
Chie Mukai is
a composer, musician and master improviser from Osaka, Japan. She's
the founder of the underground improv-folk group Ché-SHIZU,
one of the most original and mystifying groups to ever emerge from
Japan's musical underground. Mukai became involved in improvisation
and free music in 1975, when she joined the East Bionic Symphonia
group under the leadership of Fluxus violinist-composer Takehisa
Kosug. Her primary instruments are the bowed Chinese er-hu, piano
Chie says 'Bring instruments,
ideas, books to read, sounds, toys - anything you’d like'.

Music Out of Emptiness

Brighton, Waterloo Place, BN2 9NB
How do you make
music when you have no inspiration, little time and few resources?
This workshop will lead you through writing a choral work to be
performed later in the day. Music making will be seen as a productive
mindfuck whereby with minimal input a state of extreme confusion
can be created thus inducing the necessary illusion of inspiration
very quickly with nothing more than a few simple ideas.
Bring a book or two. Limited space! Book Now!
has been involved with music for most of his life. He discovered
the power of the art form by thumping the family piano as an angry
5 year old. In the intervening 45 years he has attempted to harness
the same experimental, naive, playful power in his live performances
and in all of his 140 releases. This creative openness has led him
to explore different musical genres.
He is classically
trained in piano and guitar, but musically he grew up in the shadow
cast by punk rock. Adopting guerrilla recording techniques, the
independent D.I.Y. ethic is at his core.
