The Collaborative Listener: Exploring Our Connection With Music Through Writing and Drawing
Type: Experiment Along Virtual Demonstration
Join James Brinkmann for an interactive flute concert to explore how active listening can transform us into collaborators with performers. You’ll write or draw what you hear in the music and think about your experience with guided questions during each piece.
This is inspired by James’s research playing in Chicago’s train stations where he invited train passengers to create art spontaneously while listening to Western classical music. Come hear stories about the train station pieces and learn how engaged listening transforms us into collaborative listeners. No art “skills” are required. All are welcome for a fun and meaningful musical experience!
While listening, participants are invited to write and/or draw what they hear in the music. Participants will need to have a piece of paper as well as a pen, pencil, colored pencils, crayons, or any expressive medium of their choosing.
