This workshop is aimed at musicians, sound artists, improvisers and non-musicians interested in exploring listening, space, body, and voice to expand the notions of sound creation. This workshop invites people who want to get together to create collaboratively by listening, improvising, sharing space, feeling and enjoying the body. The group is invited to be very diverse.

Each person is asked to bring an object that makes a sound; it is very important that there is an affective link with that object, which can be a musical instrument in the conventional sense, or any object that makes a sound (computers are also welcome).

The workshop will deal with the work Qué pasaría si… / What would happen if… composed in 2022 for A Year of Deep Listening (https://www.deeplistening.rpi.edu/ayodl/page/5/).
