The work proposed is based on listening. Through an awareness of sound, a subtle adjustment of listening and empirical research on sound production, the musicians gradually discover the freedom to create their own music beyond the standard modes of playing, with no pre-established rules other than that of placing listening at the centre of the process. An intuitive and playful way of approaching musical creation as well as a space favourable to questioning sound and musical interactions.
Jonas Kocher has led workshops at the Tbilisi Conservatory, the Sound (Dis)obedience Festival Ljubljana, the Musik Akademie Basel, among others.
