This spring I’m inviting you to revitalize yourself in a creative and artistic way.
Join this unique Creative Rendezvous session on March 13, where we will be discovering the fascinating world of Wassily Kandinsky and creating your own masterpiece accompanied by live music. No previous experience in arts is needed.
Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a Russian painter, graphic artist and art theorist. It would not be an underestimated statement to call him the Father of abstract modern art. During the workshop we will concentrate on a few aspects of his creative process. Besides his work in visual arts, he had a passion for music, poetry and theater. He himself played the piano and the cello, wrote verses and scripts.
We will look into some of his work where he connected visual and audio modes, we will discuss the process of seeing sounds, the synesthesia. We will talk about his work with Schoenberg. We will see some bits of the Kandinsky’s performance Pictures at an Exhibition – a music piece by Mussorgsky, which was created under a strong impression of the Viktor Hartmann’s exhibition.
This constant dialogue between the different artistic domains is what interests me the most. This inner connection and cross-inspiration. That is what I would like to explore more during the workshop. As the culmination of this, we will touch upon Kandinsky’s Synthesis of Arts and performance The Yellow Sound.
After this introduction I will propose a few exercises where we will be interpreting different sounds and music using our own impressions, envisioned colors and forms.
This is going to be a unique experience, since for this session I’m collaborating with Alex Choub from Bassworks, who will perform live for us during the workshop. Alex is a composer, teacher, producer and performing musician with 6-string bass ‘touch style’ technique.
I will provide the following materials, but you are welcome to bring your own as well:
- white paper
- colored paper
- pastels / crayons
Tea, coffee and light snacks are offered during the workshop.
We are really looking forward to bring in the music and colors together with you in some kind of unity and boosting your creative energy this spring!
