Soundpainting is a great tool to work with multidisciplinary artists and art Students. It brings together different disciplines under one tool very harmonically, it opens a wide possibility for each artist to create in real time all together instinctively. And with its improvisational structure, the works have always a fresh sprit and atmosphere. It is a great training for improvisational challenges and dealing with unexpected moments of performances.
There are many types of gestures, some indicating specific material to be performed as well as others indicating specific styles, genres, aleatoric concepts, improvisation, disciplines, stage positions, costumes, props, and many others.
The Soundpainter composes with what happens in the moment, whether expected or not. The ability to compose with what happens in the moment, in real time, is what is required in order to attain a high level of fluency with the Soundpainting language.
