Wake Up Dead Man Workshop w/Alex Coke
Nov 01 - Nov 27, 2011
Every Tuesday in November I'll be doing a workshop based on my piece Wake Up Dead Man at Zalle 100. We finish with a concert the last Sunday of the month.
Wake Up Dead Man is a piece I wrote in six movements for the Texas Sesquicentennial (150 year anniversary of statehood).
The music is inspired by prison work songs and a book of the same title by Bruce Jackson.
I plan to arrange sections of the piece for the group and discuss prison and work songs, hopefully creating new material as the month unfolds.
Rehearsals: 4 times per month on Tuesday evenings 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. De Wittenstraat 100, Amsterdam
Cost: € 30, - per month, € 15, - for students
The month ends with a performance as part of the monthly Brokkenmiddag, every last Sunday of the month at Zaal 100.
The Brokkenfabriek was founded by CVB in January 2008. Motivated, talented musicians with an interest in the combination of composition/improvisation receive masterclasses for a month, from different musical leaders. Every leader has of course a completely different approach and the material that is offered is therefore very varied. The BrokkenFabriek consists of a pool of musicians and changes every month, depending on the workshopleader and his plans.
