26/1-2019 - Masterclass med Jesse van Ruller

Etter den svært så vellykkede masterclassen med Peter Bernstein 10/1 følger vi opp med nok en internasjonal jazzgitarstjerne: Jesse van Ruller på Hausmania (Flerbrukssalen) lørdag 26/1 fra kl 20-22.
Han er i byen for å spille konsert på Herr Nilsen med sin trio tidligere samme dag.
Dette er primært rettet mot unge, men det er også åpent for eldre etablerte gitarister.
Det er en symbolsk deltakeravgift på kr 100,- for de under 26 år, og 150,- for de fra 27 år og oppover.
Man må sende meg en epost på mrsolli@gmail.com eller en sms til 95226824 for å melde seg på. VIKTIG: Man må Vippse deltakeravgiften til meg i forkant slik at det blir en bindende påmelding og jeg kan forutse hvor mange som dukker opp. Har man ikke Vipps så avtaler vi alternativer per epost, som f.eks å overføre i nettbank.
Vi er så heldige at vi har fått støtte fra Norsk Jazzforum sin Frifond-ordning, slik at vi kan ha en liten sikkerhet og kan holde deltakeravgiften lav. Dette er et idealistisk prosjekt og eventuelt overskudd vil gå til å arrangere ytterligere masterclasser utover våren. Det er også lov å delta om man ikke spiller gitar.
Vær så snill og lik, del og tips dine gitarspillende venner/kollegaer/elever/medelever!

2/12 Body-voice method of voice training with Kazehito Seki

RFORKOMFORT #11 presents:
Body-voice method of voice training (Introduction course)
Instructor: Kazehito Seki (an amplified voice artist, noise musician, voice trainer, etc, from Tokyo.)

Duration:
240 minutes.

Maximum / Minimum number of trainees:
Maximum: 10 / Minimum: 1

Language:
I speak English or Japanese.

Price:
Recommended 500 NOK
Name your price in between 30 - 100 NOK

*You are signed up when you got the confirmation reply from Kazehito.


🌑🌑🌑Body-voice method
is the simplest way for vocalisation. It lets you notice how your body can naturally vocalise. All you need is just to focus on each breath, each moment of the state of your body and mind, and then, just let it go.

Vocalisation is a general function of human as an animal. However it is a technically highly complicated and sophisticated function. Our body already/originally has and knows how to use such a great function. Most of us can normally talk to another person with precisely appropriate volume, direction, and tension. When you speak, the sound of your voice is unconsciously/automatically tuned up very accurate by your body.

🌑🌑🌑How does the workshop go?
🌑🌑1. Set your goal and the subject
*prework

What is your biggest concern about your voice? What is “the best voice” you would imagine and wish for?? And how does it feel like when you have it??? Set your final goal to achieve. Then it leads to the actual subject that you work on, through this workshop.

For example, if you have a problem with speaking in the daily life, like people don’t understand what you say, it must be a big anxiety. Then you probably don’t even like your voice. In this case, the best situation (the goal) would be that your voice reaches the target clearly, without big efforts, you have smooth conversation, no anxiety, then, in the end maybe you can even like your voice. The subject would be to say “hi” to other person (your groupwork partner) or some trial to talk to your partner.

For another example. Let’s say you want to scream brutally, but your voice gets worn out after 5 minutes, then maybe the scream doesn’t sound cool. It must be a big anxiety if you cannot perform as you wish, or possibly even not as good as you usually do actually. The goal would be that you can scream smoothly without any damage, sounding brutal. In this case, the subject would be to scream as you like.

🌑🌑2. Repetition of trials
*main part / groupwork
Trial of your subject
Feedbacks from 3 different perspectives (Your ear / Other people / The video)
Adjustment and retrial based on the feedbacks.

The trial is the best way to practice. Nothing happens unless you try. Many people are scared of failure but you can try anything at anytime during this workshop. Of course you would fail sometimes. But failure is an important process of evolution. You can analyse the failure to extract the essence that what and how you can change for the next trial. And this process is accelerated a lot by both, taking and giving decent, flat feedbacks not only from/to the trainer but also from/to other trainees who are also working on the voice from other point of view. There are a few points to give good feedbacks. Giving feedback to others requires/helps you to fully understand and sort about the subject. The repetition of trials with decent feedbacks is the fastest way to reach the goal.

🌑🌑Following exercises
*I will teach something new to those who already attended in the past.
There are some practical exercises help your steps towards your each goal as below for example:
🌑Body scanning (To subject your body)
🌑State scanning (Body, mind, etc) connected with your voice
🌑Stretches for breathing muscles
🌑Stretches for body connection
🌑Actions with necessity
🌑Specification of the target (Voice with necessity)
etc etc…

I do teach, but my way is just one of the theories in the world I reached. There is nothing like the only “the true answer” which can be applied universally to anybody at any occasion. My way is set for, and built from myself. It can help you but still it is one of the samples you can refer to. It is you who find your answers that your body knows. Body-voice method helps you in several different ways to reach the method of your own.


🌑🌑🌑Kazehito Seki
is an amplified voice artist, noise musician, voice trainer, etc, from Tokyo.
Voiz set is played just with 1 or 2 microphone/s with NO electronic FX. Working on the sound produced from the vocal organ in broader and more concrete sense, relativises the existing interpretation of the “voice” (such as singing, talking, etc). The wide spectrum flickers in subtle ambience, intense silence and brutal harsh noise in a microsecond.
Self Toxication is another project that abstracts the “voice” forming into the sound deeper. The toxin over amplified in stereo channels feedbacking between soundsystem and the physicality (as the hardcore), cuts up himself messing up at the top speed of harsh noise.

Since 2006, Kazehito has been blasting his voice in numerous projects, bands with following keywords >>> cutups, drone, experimental, grind, noiserock, sadcore, sludge, “Voiz” choir, and collaborations with >>> butoh, installations, videofeedbacks, etc. Some of his past stages are listed as below: allEars (2018 / Oslo), Ende Tymes (2017 / NYC), MultiDOM (2016-17 / Over Europe), ART MEETING (2016, 14 / Fukushima), FRIV Festival (2016 / Poznań), MultiMadeira (2015 / Madeira), (LUFF2016, 15 / Lausanne), etc.

🌑🌑🌑How was it invented?
This unique method is invented by a voice master, William Tokuhisa. He has a thousand vocal techniques such as various types of throat singings (Tuvan, Mongolian, Sardinian, etc), the Voiz technique which enables human to produce harsh noise only with his/her voice (+ a microphone with PA), and etc.
The idea of Body-voice method is based not only on vocal techniques. It is derived also from broad studies about human perception, psychology, and body action, including an old philosophical Chinese martial arts called Hanshi Yiquan.

Kazehito met William in 2012. For 3 years, William has taught him the simplest and uniquest method.
Even Kazehito did use to scream himself hoarse from time to time. But after he mastered the method, his voice never fails him. Since then, Kazehito has been teaching and always updating the method with the latest feedbacks and discoveries. His career which started in the Tokyo underground sonic ghetto culture, and now which is in the worldwide frontline of the real underground (=non-commercial) scene, make his lesson highly practical and detailed.

The Body-voice method is not only for singers. It is for anything regarding the voice such as, to touch the audience efficiently, to make a good speech, to scream brutally, just to like your voice better, or of course to sing beautifully, etc… It gives you a chance to subject yourself through the voice. It did change Kazehito’s life.

Language
I speak English or Japanese.

Duration
240 minutes.

Maximum / Minimum number of trainees
Maximum: 10 / Minimum: 1

Price
Recommended 500 NOK
Name your price in between 30 - 100 NOK


🌑🌑🌑What do trainees need to prepare
🌑A video camera to shoot yourself vocalising (A smartphone is fine)
🌑Pen and paper for taking notes
🌑Comfortable outfits (sporty ones are best)
🌑Some drinks or snacks
🌑Your final goal about your voice, and a subject you practice repeatedly during the workshop.

*Feel free to take a rest / go to toilet whenever you need during the workshop.
Please help yourself to maintain your concentration.

Om filmene :

Erna´s Video
(2005) 30 min.
Erna Solberg, den nåværende statsministeren fra det konservative partiet Høyre, bestemte seg i 2003 for å bruke media som et politisk verktøy for å forsøke å redusere tilstrømningen av asylsøkere fra Balkan til Norge. Disse TV-produksjonene ble produsert og kringkastet lokalt i Balkanlandene uten å informere seerne om at de ble finansiert og initiert av norske kilder. Dette ligger i sterk kontrast til de prinsipper som fremmes av norske utdanningsprosjekter på Balkan vedrørende rettferdig og objektiv journalistikk, som også har blitt initiert av de samme politikerne.

“Karl Ingar Røys analyserer i filmen “Erna’s Video” produksjonen av dokumentarfilmer som har som mål å informere befolkningen i mindre utviklede land i Europa og over hele verden om Norges strenge krav for innvandring. Filmkampanjen ble initiert og bestilt av Erna Solberg, tidligere partileder og kommunal- og regionalminister (2001-2005) i den norsk regjering. Noen uavhengige medier fra Balkan-regionen deltok også i produksjonen.» Nebojsa Milikic, Belgrade

Rianxeira
(2018 )15.30 min
La Solfónica er et kor som vokste ut av protestene i Madrids Puerta del Sol 15. mai 2011. Koret opptrer i demonstrasjoner med et mål om å bringe klassisk musikk ut av institusjonene og aktualisere en samtidstematikk helt i ånden til komponister som Giuseppe Verdi som i operaen Nabucco (1841) kjempet for en frigjøringen av Nord-Italia fra Østerrike. Dirigenten i La Solfónica David Alegre sier at Nabuccos budskap fortsatt resonnerer i Spania, mer enn 170 år senere. ”På den tiden var det en politisk og militær okkupasjon, i dag er okkupasjonen økonomisk og ideologisk.” Rianxeira er en film om kollektiv resonans, dissonans som dissidens.

The Generation of the Peacocks
(2016 ) 5.17 min
Thangyat er et av de eldste eksemplene på burmesisk sangkultur. Den blir utført med en ledesanger som har et dansekor bak seg, som reagerer på en hovedsanger. Thangyat kan være morsomt og satirisk og kombinerer politikk, poesi, dans og musikk. Tradisjonelt feirer Thangyat-sangere den årlige burmesiske vannfestivalen med sanger, kvede, danser og skuespill.
Forestillingene ble forbudte i flere tiår fordi de ofte har en anti-autoritær vinkling, men ble offisielt tillatt i 2013. Likevel var Thangyat-grupper pålagt å innrapportere sine sanger til regionale myndigheter for godkjenning så sent som i 2015. Ifølge regjeringens regler kan ikke sanger inneholde “ensidig beskyldninger og kritikk som kan påvirke verdigheten til Republikken Myanmar og regjeringen” og må ikke “føre til oppløsning av nasjonal solidaritet”. Studentbevegelsen i Burma har vært en svært viktig politisk kraft i de mest sentrale hendelsene i landets brutale historie. Selv etter de nye politiske reformene har mange studenter som jobber politisk blitt forfulgt og arrestert.
Sangere: Han Htoo Khant Paing, Nan Lin, Paing Phyo Min, Tint Tint Su, Aung Lay, Soe Htet Oo, Paing Ye Thu, Min Thu Kyaw og Zay Yar Lwin

We continue the “Struggle” -series with presentations and conversations about alternative arenas for culture, cultural activism and the position of art in society in times of populism.
Sunday 18th November at 6 pm we invite you to a screening of films by Karl Ingar Røys. The whole program with three films is about 50 min long. After the screening there will be a conversation between Karl Ingar Røys and Are Syvertsen from The Norwegian Filmschool in Lillehammer, and the audience.
Light refreshments.

Karl Ingar Røys is an artist based in Berlin and Oslo. His practice consists of making video works in order to create new platforms for speculation, knowledge building and exchange. The emphasis is put on deconstruction and reconstruction of meaning in a predetermined or institutionalized context where he explore the relationship between politics, culture, economy and art. His educational background is in Law studies at the University of Tromsø and Critical Fine Art Practice from Central Saint Martins College of Art in London, UK- He is currently working on a Master in Comparative Politics at the University of Bergen, where he investigates the role of cultural activism in transforming societies. Røys has shown his works in Norway and internationally, his last projects were exhibited at among others, Latin American Center for Rural Development. Chiloe, Chile, IIPPE Berlin School of Economics and Law, Germany, Espacio Trapézio. Madrid, Spain, John Jones Prosjekt Space London, UK, Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe, Germany, and at the National Gallery in Tirana, Albania. https://karlingarroys.blogspot.com/

Program:

Erna´s Video (2005) 30 min.

Erna Solberg, the current Prime Minister from the Norwegian Conservative Party Høyre, decided to use media as a political tool in order to attempt to reduce the influx of asylum seekers coming from the Balkans to Norway. These TV-productions were produced and broadcast locally in Balkan countries without informing viewers that they were funded and initiated by Norwegian sources. This lies in stark contrast to the principles promoted by Norwegian educational projects in the Balkans regarding fair and objective journalism, which have also been initiated by the same politicians.

`In his video titled “Erna’s Video”, the Norwegian artist Karl Ingar Røys analyses the production of documentaries whose aim is to inform the population of the less developed countries in Europe and worldwide of Norwegian tough immigration requirements. The films were conceived and commissioned by Erna Solberg, the former Minister of Local Government and Regional Development in the Norwegian government. Some independent media from the Balkan region also took part in their production. Karl Ingar Røys’ work consists of showing the video and organizing discussions with the members of the film crews taking part in Erna’s project, as well as with the local audience.`- Nebojsa Milikic, Belgrade

Rianxeira (2018) 15.30 min.

La Solfónica is a choir based in Madrid, which grew out of the protests at Puerta del Sol on May 15, 2011, the day after which the “15-M” movement is named. Formed in the run-up to regional elections, its members, inspired by the Arab Spring, demanded change in a system dominated by the conservative People’s Party and the center-left Socialist Workers’ Party, which was in power at the time. Performing classical music at demonstrations, the choir follows the tradition of composers like Giuseppe Verdi, who in the opera Nabucco propagated the liberation of northern Italy from Austria. This opera was written in 1841 and became closely linked with the Italian unification movement. David Alegre, conductor of La Solfónica, says the same message still resonates today in Spain, more than 170 years later. At that time he says, “it was a political military occupation but today the occupations are economic and ideological. We apparently have a democracy in Spain but they repress democratic features that allow citizens to participate and really change things”. Rianxeira is a film about collective resonance and dissonance as dissidence.

The Generation of the Peacocks (2016) 5.17 min.

Thangyat is one of the oldest examples of Burmese song culture. It is performed with a lead singer who has a dancing chorus behind him, which responds to the main singer. Thangyat can be funny and satirical, combining politics, poetry, dance and music. Traditionally, troupes of Thangyat singers celebrate the yearly Burmese water-festival with songs, chants, dances and plays. The performances were banned for decades because they often have an anti-authoritarian slant but have been officially allowed since 2013. Still, Thangyat groups were required to send their chants to the regional government’s Information and Public Relation Department for approval also in 2015. According to government rules, chants cannot feature “one-sided accusations and criticisms that could affect the dignity of the Union of Republic of Myanmar and the government” and must not “lead to the disintegration of national solidarity”. The student movement in Burma has been a very important political force in the most pivotal events in its brutal history. Even after the new political reforms several university students who work politically have been intimidated and arrested.
