I-Thou-We (Chris Avitabile, LMFT)
May 26 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Meaningful contact, both verbal and non verbal, reminds us that we are intimately connected and constantly influencing each other. Our tendency to organize sound into music as means of relating to ourselves and with others is uniquely human and utilizes phenomenological processes. In this salon we will explore elements of gestalt theory and practice such as dialogue, inclusivity, and experimental attitude using sound and playing music with one another.
Participants will be encouraged to use readily available sound making tools such as voice, hands, cell phones etc., to experience self and one another in various musical experiments. No prior musical knowledge is necessary, only a willingness to play. If there are certain sounds that are reproducible, recorded or not, that are meaningful to you please bring them as a contribution to this experiential workshop.
Chris Avitabile, LMFT is in private practice in the miracle mile neighborhood of Los Angeles. In addition to his work as a therapist he is interested in the relational potential of music through improvisation, spontaneous composition, found sound and social practice.
