First steps towards ImMusic
During the first workshop after launching the ImMusic project, we only started to think at an experimental level about how the concept could work in an environment where the participants had not yet encountered the basics of music. Since this is a new field even for us, first of all, embedded in the course of the workshop, as a relaxing exercise, we selected tasks that could even be suitable for the final collection of the project. We tried simpler melodies, one-two-part African arrangements and rhythm exercises with the participants. Even during the first testing, we considered it important that the participants could also get involved in the creation of the exercises, that they could also initiate a rhythmic turn or melody, which the group would take over and pass on.
