Explore musical possibilities with musician Stephanie Pawula. Through discussion, listening and examining their own unique soundscapes and soundtracks participants will finish with their own collection of newly composed works. These will be create using field recording, day to day objects, voice and instruments.Stephanie will share her experience in making improvised music following a theme, an image, a movement, an idea as well as presenting a musical statement.
