Junk Music and Sound Experimentation workshop in Albany

Justin Lander of Modern Times Theater joins us at the Albany Town Hall to discover music in unexpected places. Music is everywhere, if you know how to listen for it: right outside the window, coming out of our clothing, and available in the objects of everyday life. In this
workshop, participants are guided through a series of listening exercises, rhythm
games, and sound improvisations to develop the ear, as well as to gain experience in
being part of an ensemble. Participants will then learn to make a variety of
functioning musical instruments and noisemakers from common household items
and garbage. For both the accomplished musician as well as the novice, these
explorations of the uses of non-traditional sound are accessible and fun.
