THE SOUNDING BOX
A workshop about prepared guitar and approaching improvisation with Francesca Naibo
The sounding box is a wooden box with strings and a neck. It’s naturally full of air and fills itself up with melodies, memories, sounds, noises, songs.. Time fills it up, experience shapes its form. It’s a collection of sounds and objects, extended appendages that are springs of sonic events.
How can we make this box our own personal sonic treasure chest? How is it possible to deeply express our own voice through material objects and materials? How can we extend the musical vocabulary of one of the most popular instruments? How can we authentically play it without a score?
“The sounding box” is a good opportunity to share experiences, discover new skills and knowledges or try in first person what you can do or still not do on the guitar, but you haven’t had the courage to try yet.
