Description

Free Jazz III. Sound. Walks.

“Do you find it hard to concentrate these days? Perhaps the blues bug just keeps nipping away at your heels? Are you bored and feeling listless or always struggling to keep going? When was the last time you did something different, something a little adventurous, slightly odd or just for the fun of it? Can you spare 10 to 15 minutes for a simple creative ritual? “

Wang offers an instructional manual of self-therapy to perk up your spirit. Activate an appreciation for life, expression, awareness and presence through sound, vocalizing, movement and imagination.

*The poem quoted in exercise three is by Pauline Oliveros, “The Earth Worm Also Sings” (1992)
