PlayFully – Body, Rhythm, Improvisation

Merzi Rajala

”I welcome you to play and sing with me, as you are – holistically. To unite small games, steps and claps, rhythms and grooves to our voices and bodies and letting those transform into music. We will experience some approaches to vocal improvisation in choirs – ​as I wish to show you how to get started yourself. You will also get to know basic principals of Vocal Painting sign language and to create music together using the signs.”

– Merzi Rajala –

Merzi specialises in popular music, including world music genres and fusions. In addition to her own choral work Merzi is the responsible lecturer for Global Choir Conducting at the  Uniarts Helsinki’s Sibelius Academy. She loves games, playfulness and she believes in choral music perfomed with honesty, groove and true energy.

Handbell o´clock

Vivo handbell ensemble

In the workshop we will study different technics and ways to play hand bells and chimes. The participants will have the possibility to try to play the bells together with the ensemble. We will also during the session focus on the playing ergonomics (hands, feet and the whole body). The main subject for the workshop is to provide the participants with ideas how to use hand bells and chimes in music activities in a parish.

I verkstaden bekantar vi oss med olika spelsätt för handklockor och chimes. Det här gör vi genom att själva spela. Under övningarna går vi också igenom spelandets ergonomi (händer, fötter och hela kroppen). Målsättningen med verkstaden är att ge deltagarna en uppfattning om handklockornas och chimesklockornas användningsmöjligheter i församlingarnas musikarbete.
