Walden Online Workshop: Text Score Teatime

Tuesday, February 16, 2021
7:30-9:30pm Eastern time
Zoom video call

Presented by Kittie Cooper

In this workshop, we will explore the creative potential in using text to notate music. We will make sounds and words together, and discover means of integrating text scores into your own creative practice and interests. Whether you are an experienced composer/writer/artist, or whether you haven’t done any writing since elementary-school book reports, this workshop is for you! (no experience with music or writing required). Bring a mug of tea or hot chocolate, and come enjoy a peaceful evening (or afternoon, or morning) of sounds, words, and the company of others.

We’ll be looking at works by some of the following composers: Pauline Oliveros, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Alison Knowles, Mieko Shiomi, and more.

Please bring the following materials to the workshop: something you enjoy writing with and on, paper (different colors or textures are encouraged), tape, scissors (optional), markers (optional), a cozy beverage and/or snacks (silly little sandwiches encouraged).

Register here.
