Workshop SERENDIPITY – New Year Sound-bath & Improvisation
Yuko Matsuyama & Nico Lippolis
Mid. February.2024 at Tanzfabrik Berlin Studio3

Serendipity is New Year Sound-bath (Klangbad) & improvisation.
It is open for everyone.
 We offer 120min. practice with sound bath, voice warmup into group improvisation (voice and/or movement).

– Sound meditation and Voicing –
What we hear as a sound or music is vibration in the air.
To prepare our mind for improvisation, we’ll observe the sensation of vibration of the air that exists outside and inside our body.
Listening to the air is a quiet yet an intensive action, as if re-experience the wind and calm in our memory.

Our practice will start from Pranayama (breathing method) and sound meditation with singing bowls.
After observing the silence inside of us, we start open our voice and movement.
Vocal exercises are focus on the sensation of vibration and harmony.
We’ll then apply this awareness of vibration in the air, exploring it in improvisation.
