Graphic Notation & Scoring Improvisation: A workshop on a specific graphic notation language I have been developing over the last couple of years. The notation deals with aspects of sound/collaboration such as density, presence, and colour, instead of more traditional western elements like rhythm and pitch. I'll bring a set of scores and teach the notation to everyone, then we can play them together!

Storytelling Through Song: A workshop sharing techniques and thoughts on how to compose music that supports the story of the lyrics, whether concurrently composing lyrics or setting an existing text. Various topics will be covered, including where to start, how to deduce what is important to preserve from the mood of an existing text, when to support the lyrics musically and when to let the music contrast with the message, and how to take ideas from works we already love. This workshop will not hold specific to any one genre, but explore what we can learn from anything we love.
