Kaleidoscopic Listening: Resonating with Music's Waves of Influence

  • thumbnail for Eugene Corporon
  • In addition to music being heard, it has long been understood that music can also be felt both physically and emotionally. If this is so, then to be effective conductors we must be full-body listeners, using our bodies and our ears. This session will consider conducting as an Improvisational Art as well as discuss the importance of Kaleidoscopic Listening. It will also address how exploration, discovery and invention inform and influence the placement of “Designs in the Know Where.”
