Improvised Music Workshops
Explore improvised music using Colin’s original instruments and sound sculptures in a non-confrontational approach to music making. The workshops are suited to people of any age or level of skill from beginners to professional musicians. Improvisation is an excellent way to compose, to develop ideas, listening and teamwork as well as an end in itself. These workshops are conducted by Colin and Yilan Yeh from Curlew Republic.
