by Katrien Van Opstal
In this online lecture we will take a look at the connection between voice, body and emotion.
Katrien Van Opstal, Belgian jazz singer and researcher, developed the Mixing Table Model for vocal jazz. In a flexible way, it connects the anatomical setup of the voice with a desired sound. At first sight. Look deeper and you see the emotions of words and music translated into the body and expressed through sound.
We will explore where different emotions are felt in our bodies. We will work with the model to understand how these feelings give rise to different sounds. We will use this deep level of consciousness to express ourselves in songs, movement and spoken word. You will be able to deeply feel the stories told. You will hear them in the words, feel them in your bodies and have them expressed in music.
