CONDUCTION | Workshop for improvisers with Elio Martusciello

Florence, 30 September > 2 October 2019, Limonaia di Villa Strozzi
CONDUCTION | Workshop for improvisers with Elio Martusciello

An ensemble training course aimed at electronic musicians and instruments held by Elio Martusciello
In occasion of Tempo Reale Festival, Y  e di Research sounds and music – Training 2019

The workshop aims to bring participants closer to conduction, an execution practice in which a conductor leads a group of improvisers during a performance using a shared gestural code. Participants will be led towards an understanding of the logic of signs and of their interactive quality. Thanks to the improvisational action, every musician can become aware of their own role and responsibility in the process of collective musical construction, and also of the ability of every other component of the ensemble to interact with the other musicians and with the conductor.

The workshop is open to all active Italian and foreign musicians, with no age limit: instruments of any type (classic, ethnic, electronic, self-made, voice, etc.) are admitted but will be completely autonomous, if not for the possible need for specific amplification or microphoning to be agreed with the technical direction of Tempo Reale. Tempo Reale will also evaluate, with further selections, instruments that are not easily transportable (piano, keyboard percussion instruments, large percussion instruments, etc.) depending on the number of proposals received. The workshop will have its public presence with a concert directed by Elio Martusciello within the Tempo Reale Festival (section Y), on October 2nd.

The meetings will take place at the Limonaia of Villa Strozzi, via Pisana 77, Florence, with the following configuration:
