Vocal Workshop by Colin Self
Friday, 10 June 2022, 6.30 – 8.30pm
Rathausvorplatz / Town Hall Square
XOIR is a non-utilitarian vocal workshop led by Colin Self focused on alternative modalities of group singing. Rooted in somatic research and experimentation, the goal of XOIR is to foster a generative environment for individuals to connect with voice and vocality on an individual and collective level. XOIR is open to anyone interested in exploring their voice as a tool for learning or re-posturing a new relationship to singing and listening. Prior participation in choral or vocal practices is not required, but any prior experience with listening and engaging experimentally in a musical or studio practice is encouraged.XOIR works with a logic of being “autonomous together” and points into ancient and futuristic logics of ungovernable modalities of community organising.
Colin Self (b. 1987 Oregon, USA) composes music, performance, and environments that expand consciousness and trouble binaries as well as boundaries of perception and communication. They work with communities across disciplines and use immaterial and material means – including voices, bodies, and computers – to interface with and reimagine worlds. Self currently lives between Berlin and New York.
