Workshop by Brandon Farnsworth, Music Curator
Through a mix of presentations and performances, the Connecting Sound Workshop offered a space for artists working in various performing arts fields to come together in a relaxed atmosphere and share practices, ideas, and experiences. It offered a space that promoted unexpected encounters while placing no emphasis on finished products, preferring rather to spill into the eternal flow of practice.
Several moments during the workshop stood out because of their surprising but somehow also inevitable nature. These intuitive moments were in retrospect inexorable, though could never have been premeditated. It was precisely this nature that lent them their significance, and which hopefully could inflect positive change in the practices of the participants.
