POSTPONED: Whale Song, A Workshop: CU Music

Saturday, April 18, 2020 at 10:30am to 12:00pm

Sage Chapel
Central Campus

This event will be postponed to the fall semester.

Katy Payne and Daniela Gesundheit facilitate an environment within which a primary experience of the compositional techniques and structures at play in humpback whale song can emerge. Together, we will employ leaderless collaboration and experimentation to examine and illuminate the vocalizations of one of the world’s largest living mammals, and to see what we might discover about group identity, distance, competition, innovation, and empathy in the process. All singers, all voices, welcome.

Part of the Whale Listening Project. Additional events:

4/17 Whale Song Sounding

4/18 Whale Song, a Workshop
