MUSIC Workshop

Guest Artist: Pedro Augusto
19 - 21st OCT 2015 – E.B. 2.3 das Naus, Lagos

We will explore different approaches to musical composition and especially to the way we listen and play our instruments. We will look at them and find out other sounds using less conventional techniques and ideas, always with a watchful eye to history and evolution of the world music.
The work includes an informal presentation at the end of the workshop.
