We will be working with the amazing Mike Kearney and members of the Tinderbox Orchestra to learn some new compositions that have been written this year by the Tinderbox Collective. We will explore the world of improvisation using a kung fu based conducting technique called ‘Suggesture’. We’ll compose a brand new piece of music.
The course will culminate in a performance alongside the Tinderbox Orchestra and our other projects, Tuesday Hub, Rock Trust Hub and Digital Lab at Tinderbox Make Music Day on Friday 21st June at Roxy Assembly, Edinburgh, 7 – 10pm.
