Multi instrumentalist Rosie Langabeer works experimentally and improvisationally with idiomatic music. Inspired by nature and drawn toward curious, impractical goals that might just be achieved with the help of friends and strangers, Langabeer regularly finds herself in the midst of collaborative work.
She has a long history with creating music for theatre, ballet and experimental ensembles both in New Zealand and in Philadelphia. Her regular experimental interactive big band event, The Best Most Happiest Fun Sexy Cabaret of Good Fortune and Prosperity, is happening every month at Meow.
This session is planned to be a kōrero, a scheming session and a jam. Langabeer will be testing out sound games/participatory performance ideas, and talking about the connective possibilities and practical applications of experimental arts. She would love people to discuss their own experiences with interactive music/art projects - the good the bad and the ugly - and collectively brainstorm methods for future events.
