This week we return to a visual prompt. And … here it is:
Your task is simply to use the image as a jumping off point for singing.
Your vocal improvisation might be simple, melodic, rhythmic, verbal, abstract, silly, sacred, simple — that’s for you to discover.
(This photo was taken at the summer meeting of the Moving Star Vocal Improvisation Lab at Carnegie Hall.)
The steps are as follows:
- Step 0: Sign up for a free SoundCloud account here.
- Step 1: Record yourself singing to the prompt.
- Step 2: Upload to SoundCloud.
Deadline: Your tracks should be uploaded by midnight wherever you are on Tuesday, August 9, 2016.
Description: It would be awesome to include a short description of where and when you sang your piece.
Title/Tag: When uploading to SoundCloud, put “[sss-hands]” in the title of your track. Also include the term “sss-hands” as a tag. This will help us find it.
Linking: You are welcome to include this info in your description:
This track is a reply to “SSS Prompt 78: Sing these hands.” More on the Society for Spontaneous Singing at http://singthis.org .
Thank you, sweet singers!
