Sound Jamtastic – Vocal Improv sing

I will be “leading” us in a long-sing involving Co-Created delicious transistions, brave conductors and secret leaders….!

3:30 – 5:30pm at Alexandra’s lovely home near Greenlake.

1627 N 55th St, Seattle, WA 98103-5905, United States

Beloveds, our Sound Jamtastic is at Alexandra’s space is now a regular deal.  We are gathering every third Saturday afternoon of the month.

This is an improv, ecstatic singing circle.  In this space, we allow our voices to sound the way they sound.  We build a container that can hold tremendous freedom and joy.  This container is made of deep listening. It is held together by our willingness to honor ourselves and others.

We will be playing sound games to build our capacities for listening generosity, responsiveness, leadership, merging into the whole, venturing into new territory.  We build community through sound.

This is a leaderful circle.  Christian will be holding the container and inviting all you guest stars to bring your amazing gifts.

Much gratitude to Alexandra Gordevitch for hosting us in her home.

Logistics:

• Bring a water bottle to stay hydrated and snacks to enjoy afterwards.

• Suggested donation $3-5 to keep this beautiful boat afloat!

• There are felines living at this residence we can them put out during the time we are all together if anyone has issues.

“re-Source” – Christian Swenson & Friends play Human Jazz

A benefit for AS220 Youth Programs

This is not a dance performance, a sacred ritual or a play, nor a musical concert or a comedy show, yet it is in part all of these. It is also homage to the human medium and the spirit that connects us.

Join Christian & his friends as they co-create an evening of spontaneous performance.

“Human Jazz” is about playing the body, voice and imagination simultaneously; no set pieces, special costumes, recorded music, just humans playing. As a soloist Christian “disappears” into songs, animals, characters, body music, aliens, etc. The ensemble will play all together and in smaller groupings. The show will conclude with a participatory Balinese Kecak/Monkey Chant.

Ecstatic Singing Circle (on-going)

If you’d like to try singing improv with us, this is a very informal gathering of vocalists, singers, players, etc.  We like to play with tones, rhythms, spontaneous songs, gibberish, etc.  It happens first and third Saturday afternoons.

Here is a Meet-up Group and a Face Book page for more info:
