PROCESS:WORKSHOP is an exploration of creativity and expression in music through free improvisation. The workshop involves games, guided improvisation exercises and compositions to explore different ways of interacting and connecting musically.
Open to instrumentalists and vocalists from all backgrounds and at whatever stage in their playing, the workshop seeks to facilitate a deep exploration of creative sound making and interaction between musicians.
The afternoon’s session will be followed by an improvised evening showcase, based on material and ideas developed in the workshop.
Drummer, percussionist and sometimes-cellist Jon Clark is a familiar face on the Bristol music scene, involved in an eclectic mixture of projects spanning a melting-pot of styles. He came to free improvisation working with bassist John Pope (John Pope Quintet, Archipelago) and has since dived into exploratory sound alongside such artists as Steve Beresford, The London Improvisers Orchestra, Cleveland Watkiss, Orphy ‘Vibes’ Robinson and Al Swainger’s Pointless Beauty, to name a few.
He continues to bring a heavy element of improvisation into all his musical projects, and is really excited about bringing the freedom and connection that it can offer to others through PROCESS:WORKSHOP.
