You will learn the basics for building your own modules from the most simple parts.
At the end you will have a module to begin a system or to add to your existing rack.
Participants can decide between any of the modules that are available.
Improvisation is often called composition in real time; however, the word improvisation means a sort of spontaneous action. How the balance between spontaneity and structure can be found without damaging the free flow of a consciousness stream? How to interact spontaneously in a group improvisation to create a music stuff which sounds same time structuralized and attractively unpredictable? How to search for a common language being a part of a group of improvisers, even being a newcomer?
Reading Group | Wednesdays Nov 11, 25 & Dec 2, 9, 16 2015 From 18:00-21:00
This is a weekly meeting for those interested in understanding how we are conditioned in different ways. If we consider the possibility of actual transformation, first we need to understand ourselves in relation to this world.
We will explore our own determination from different perspectives: linguistically, socially, sexually, culturally, racially, economically, historically, biologically, and more. We will also take into account Berlin and the changes that is going through.
*** NK as an on-site location for concerts will cease to exist as of Mid September 2015, but will continue as a Collective. We are no longer handling requests for on-site events, but are open to external projects & curation requests. We will continue our concert series at other venues. The NK mailbox will be answered on a weekly basis. Please subscribe to our mailing list to hear about our future activities.***
