“Trying our hand at producing a vocabulary to improve collective musical thinking, sharpening artists’ view of their own approach, and thus advancing the production of music itself. Now isn’t that a good mission?” - Collective La Crue in Ventoline (issue 5).
The members of the group Garenne, also members of the Collective La Crue, are committed to bridging the gap between traditional music and contemporary perspectives.
This year they’re running a writing/rewriting workshop for us, reflecting on traditional songwriting and their contexts of expression.
It's a workshop where we can look together at the poetic architecture of traditional songs, highlight what we like and what we don't, and think about how and why to modify them if need be.
Workshop length: 3 hours
Max 20 people – No musical knowledge is required (participants are encouraged to bring along songs that raise questions for them and provide food for thought and practical work).
