Country:

Eligibility:

Are you starting to think about post-pandemic artistic plans? Are you attempting to chart a path forward, but feeling alone in that process? Are you simply overwhelmed, discouraged in this unjust, tumultuous time? We all are. Perhaps we can help.

Super Secret Arts Advisory is a boutique strategy firm that offers tailored solutions and unique ideas to the big picture questions that forward-thinking artists, creatives and organizations face today. And right now, we all could use a helping hand. Think of us as the secret weapon in your artistic toolbox. Just in the last few months, during this period of societal crisis, we’ve:

  • helped a talented choreographer find balance and satisfaction between disparate parts of a developing career. -helped a promising artist break free from the 9-to-5 grind and craft a future centered around their art-making.
  • guided a young artist in taking the first steps towards artistic independence and organizational structure.
  • and much more.

Here’s what a few folks have said about working with Toby:

  • “I highly recommend Toby to anyone looking for help finding direction of the future of their artistic endeavors."
  • "The way he talked about longevity and sustainability made it easier to compartmentalize actionable steps I can take today. . .and ways to make those moves matter for me in the future as an artist."
  • "My conversations with Toby made me feel supported and confident in my steps going forward."

Does any of this ring true for you? Set up a free consultation, and let's talk. During the 30 to 40 minute initial consultation, you’ll discuss your artistic journey and background, where you stand right now, and where you are looking to go in the future. Then, we'll make a plan for working together. As each of our artistic identities are unique, a collaboration with Super Secret Arts Advisory is catered to your specific situation and needs.

Get in touch, and be well.

North Indian Raga with Terry Riley

Share

Category:

Type:

Country:

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: TBC for Summer 2021
    
This workshop will be based around non-academic, practical sessions in singing North Indian Raga. There will be instruction in voice culturing and in training the ear to hear specific microtones inherent in the Raga melodies. We will progress from singing and tuning up long tones to learning melodic fragments that compose the raga melodies, and then on to learning traditional "bandesh's" or traditional compositions. All of this progress will be made by learning to copy phrases taught by ear.

We'll examine raga structure and how a raga develops through the progressive series of sections - "alap", "vilambit", "drut". Various talas - rhythm cycles that frame the ragas - will be explained and practiced. We'll examine how improvisation works in Indian music, and a method of how to improvise in these raga melodies will be given. As a composer, Terry will discuss and demonstrate how he has incorporated raga into his compositional activities.

The workshop is open to all levels of ability - all are welcome who have a passion to use their voice as an expressive musical instrument.

Composer and performer Terry Riley is one of the founders - arguably the founder - of musical minimalism. His early works, notably In C (1964), pioneered a form in Western music based on structured interlocking repetitive patterns. The influence of Terry's hypnotic, multi-layered, polymetric, brightly orchestrated Eastern-flavored improvisations and compositions is heard across the span of contemporary and popular music.

Born in California, Terry studied at San Francisco State University, and the San Francisco Conservatory before earning an MA in composition at the UC Berkeley, studying with Seymour Shifrin and Robert Erickson. At UC Berkeley, he met La Monte Young; together they worked with the dancer Anna Halprin. During a sojourn to Europe 1962-64, he collaborated with members of the Fluxus group, playwright Ken Dewey, and trumpeter Chet Baker, and was involved in street theater and happenings. In 1965 he moved to New York and joined La Monte Young’s "Theater of Eternal Music." 1967 was the year of his first all-night concert at the Philadelphia College of Art and he began a collaboration with visual artist Robert Benson. An influential teacher was Pandit Pran Nath, a master of Indian classical voice; Terry appeared in concert with him as tampura, tabla and vocal accompanist for over 25 years. Terry continues to perform in concerts of his music and of Indian classical music, as well as conducting raga-singing seminars. He also appears in concerts with Indian sitarist Krishna Bhatt, saxophonist George Brooks, guitarist Gyan Riley and with virtuoso Italian bassist, Stefano Scodanibbio.

Terry joined the Mills College faculty in 1971. There he met David Harrington of the Kronos Quartet. Their long association led to 13 string quartets, the concerto The Sands (1990), the multimedia choral work commissioned by NASA, Sun Rings (2003), and The Cusp of Magic (2004) with pipa. The Kronos recording of his epic five-quartet cycle, Salome Dances for Peace was selected as the Classical album of the year by "USA Today" and was nominated for a Grammy.

The Palmian Chord Ryddle, a concerto, was premiered in May 2012 by electric violinist Tracy Silverman and The Nashville Symphony led by conductor Giancarlo Guerrero. A subsequent performance occurred at Carnegie Hall. Recent works include Transylvanian Horn Courtship (2008) for string quartet doubling on Stroh instruments, Universal Bridge (2008) for pipe organ, the violin concerto Zephir (2009), and SwarAmant (2012) for violin, guitar, and tabla.

Past commissions include: the orchestral Jade Palace (1991) for Carnegie Hall’s centennial celebration, premiered there by the Saint Louis Symphony and Leonard Slatkin; June Buddhas (1991) for chorus and orchestra, based on Jack Kerouac's "Mexico City Blues," commissioned by the Koussevitsky Foundation; the chamber vocal work What the River Said (1997) by the Norwich Festival; the piano piece in just intonation The Dream (1999) by the Kanagawa Foundation; the concerto for piano and electro-acoustic band Banana Humberto 2000 (2000) commissioned by Musical Traditions, Inc., the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, and Emory University, and premiered and toured by Terry with the Paul Dresher Ensemble; Bruce’s Traveling Machine (2005) for cello and tape, commissioned by the artist Bruce Connor; The Heaven Ladder, Book 6 (Night Music) (2006) for piano 4-hands, commissioned by Sarah Cahill and premiered by Sarah Cahill and Joseph Kubera; Loops for Ancient-Giant-Nude-Hairy Warriors Racing Down the Slopes of Battle (2006) for the Crash Ensemble; the triple concerto SolTierraLuna (2007), co-commissioned by the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia and the New Century Chamber Orchestra of San Francisco.
