    Heather Yule – Exploring ideas for accompanying the spoken word

    Sat, 10 April 2021 @ 4:00 pm Mon, 12 April 2021 @ 5:15 pm BST

    Instrumental music, art and dance are all art forms that tell stories without words. Accompanying words – be it a song, a poem or a story – is just an extension of the many ways we strive to convey emotion and a sense of narrative when we play our harps. We will delve into interesting harp techniques and develop them into variations and motifs perfect for weaving with the spoken word. It is great fun to play around with language, rhythm, range, chord textures, tonality, dynamics and tempo of both the spoken word and the music. Often the simplest patterns and ideas are the most effective. 

    Three sessions:

    • Saturday 10th April, 16:00-17:15
    • Sunday 11th April, 16:00-17:15
    • Monday 12th April, 16:00-17:15
