Eduard Pou e Pau Rodríguez, from the Catalunya band ZA!, run this workshop, drawing from languages and conducted musical improvisation theories from the 70s and 80s of the XXth century, and based on artists like Butch Morris, Walter Thompson and John Zorn.

In contemporary popular music it is understood that improvisation is changeable according to music style – each genre has its own aesthetics, with resources and ornaments of its own – being that everyone agrees that improvisation is an individual expression within a group context.

Here the proposal is of a group improvisation, centred in the speech created in the moment, and based on a sign language each musician will be performing with total freedom.

The workshop will culminate in an open concert to the community, presenting the outcomings of this process, where participant musicians will play together with Eduard Pou and Pau Rodriguez.
Following this concert, ZA! will take the stage as a duo, for a performance where they will present the new sonorities they have created since we last listen to them, in Lagos in 2017.

NOTE – Each participant must bring their own instrument and – when applicable – respective amplification, connecting cables and / or other necessary elements.
