It often goes like this:
The day before a Future Band project you are working on something else and you have no idea what is going to happen next. Before you know it, you are drawing the shape of the sound you just created whilst laying on the floor with your eyes closed limited in your movement because you have to be in contact with at least one body part of your neighbour.
This might sound a bit strange but to me it sounds like a possible Future Band scenario. Nothing is to crazy for Future Band!
Future Band is an amazing ensemble of young musicians led by Natasha Zielazinsky and Detta Danford. As Leadership student I was part of the team, the band and a mentor in the Future Band mentoring program.
During the 3 or 4 day projects we come together and devise new music through exploring new creative possibilities. Depending on the theme of the project we build our own instruments, use movement, explore improvisation, text scores, graphic score or basically anything we find interesting and exciting enough to try!
