The Community Center for the Arts is hosting a first-ever Scary Music workshop featuring the eerie sounds of the theremin and synthesizer on Halloween--Tuesday, October 31--from 5:00 to 7:00 PM at 202 W. Main St, in Urbana.

Our teachers will offer free workshops to introduce you to electronic music (including how to play a theremin and synthesizer) and we’ll also show you some fun scary sounds you can make on acoustic instruments, so bring your instrument! (Or use one of ours.)

Then we’ll guide you as you explore uncharted soundscapes with free improvisation around our scary noises theme. This is one of those great times when experienced musicians and newcomers can both have fun participating!

The Wu-Morse Duo will be on hand for this, and you’ll get to hear your improvisation as it is filtered through the incredible LinnStrument MIDI Controller. This is guaranteed to be both cool and spooky!

Treats and general musical fun will round out this event that is suitable for all ages. Wear a costume or come as you are. There is no admission fee; donations will be accepted.

The Lewis Auditorium (Ground Floor) at The Urbana Free Library
{ music, kids }

Free Improvisation has been called the world’s oldest form of musical expression. Free from harmonic, melodic and genre conventions, the style of Free Improvisation allows for complete musical expression and explorations of pure sound within a highly interactive, collaborative and non-judgmental sonic laboratory.

Workshop: Free and open to all serious teens and young adults who wish to push the boundaries of their musical expression and deepen their listening skills while exploring the sonic capabilities of their instruments/voices. Learn the basics of Free Improvisation, and then apply what you have learned in live performance with the Wu-Morse Duo. The workshop will be directed by experienced improvisers Allen Wu and Barry R. Morse (Wu-Morse Duo) who will lead group exercises designed to introduce young players to new performance possibilities beyond the traditional notated, conducted, and chord-progression based compositions and arrangements of Western music. All instruments (acoustic, electronic, percussion, ethnic) and voices are welcome. Full, enthusiastic participation is expected to maximize learning and fun!

Performance: Workshop participants are encouraged to join the Wu-Morse Duo and apply their discoveries in a live performance of experimental electro-acoustic improvisation during the Prairie Breezes family concert on Saturday morning.

Interested? Contact Barry Morse (217-369-5328 or barryrmorse@hotmail.com) by Thursday, October 5.
