Jacob Felix Heule and Danishta Rivero of Voicehandler will lead a workshop on free improvisation drawing on the Oakland-based series Doors That Only Open in Silence, as well as work by Pauline Oliveros and John Stevens. Bring your instrument (or non-instrument) and come ready to play. Open to all levels of instrumental experience.

The work will be based on listening and playing music, but someone working in a different form (e.g. a dancer) who’s willing to adapt their practice is welcome.
Indexical’s series of workshops is supported by the WHH Foundation.
Voicehandler (Jacob Felix Heule & Danishta Rivero)
Voicehandler plays intuitive, incantatory music grounded in the most primitive and somatic instruments — the voice and percussion — juxtaposed with contemporary, disembodied electronics. Their improvisations are shaped by their setting and context, and use site-specific installations to more deeply experience spaces. Voicehandler deconstructs song forms in relation to mythology and literature to explore our collective humanity and the shifting discourse surrounding it.
