Song-Walking Workshop

About Song-Walking Workshop

Song-Walking is a practical and responsive technique developed by Claire Love Wilson that draws her exploration of Scottish ballads through a decolonial lens. Participants will be instructed in the art of embodied musical walking, sourcing sounds and gestures from specific places, and re-kindling a sense of wonder and presence. Pairing a sense of play with an awareness of social and political forces that shape our experiences of place, participants will come together to invent improvised sound landscapes on the loop pedal that reflect the felt experience of both the individual and the collective.

This workshop follows a performance of Morag, You’re a Long Time Deid on Tue 5 Nov.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Song-Walking Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
