The “Sound Interaction and participatory practices in experimental music and performance” workshop (9-13 September 2019), run by Ricardo Atienza and Robin McGinley, with Leif Jordansson, is part of the “Sound in Interaction: Sound Art, Sound Architecture and Sound Design” Course at Konstfack University.

For one week, 6 students, together with their teachers, and the Director of the Conservatorio “A. Scarlatti” in Palermo, Italy, will join the “Sound in Interaction” Professional Course at Konstfack.
Through this exchange, all the participants will mainly aim to collectively compose and execute interdisciplinary interactive and sensorial scores, finalized to participatory practices. The set of methods developed in Stockholm will find its further development in a series of community-based performances in Italy, in the Fall 2019/Spring 2020. These upcoming events will be pursued by the Conservatoire’s students, with the participation of local communities in Brancaccio, Palermo.

The “Sound Interaction and participatory practices in experimental music and performance” workshop is conceived by Magazzino Brancaccio, a project for education, experimental music and performance founded in 2018, in collaboration with Conservatorio “A. Scarlatti” in Palermo, and Konstfack University of Arts Crafts and Design (Department of Fine Art).
Conservatorio “A. Scarlatti” has been funded by MIUR (Italian Ministry for Higher Education).
