Thymeshift Elektronix

Everyone is creative and can create music! Here with traditional / digital / electronic instruments (preschool-year 9)

A very exciting Swedish band that works to combine and blur boundaries between traditional / digital / electronic instruments. The music we create is influenced by rock, pop, jazz and world music.

We work primarily with music creation in the form of workshops that are aimed at all primary school years as well as high school / folk high school / etc.

About our concert workshop:

Improvisation in music can often be perceived as something elusive, but Thymeshift Elektronix compares it to the kind of improvisation we do every day, when we talk, cook, go shopping without a shopping list or just make quick decisions.

Thymeshift Elextronix does just that, albeit with their instruments, and we also work hard to sync with each other, listen in and play together in their improvisation to arouse both ears, emotions and curiosity.

If you are prepared to listen to something that is different from what we usually hear, it will be easier to receive it. Thymeshift Elektronix has open ears, and also wants to open the ears of you who listen. We pick up sounds that are in the room, sounds to experiment with, distort and play with, so that the audience is thus involved in the end result that the music constitutes. The music does not fall into any particular genre, the associations are completely free.

With playfulness and imagination, the group creates completely new music, and you get to be part of it.

Our starting point is that all people are creative, can create their own music and find an expression. We have a strong belief that music is an important part of our identity development and that knowledge of music increases the student's opportunities to shape and participate in the cultural life of the future.

Purpose:

With our visit to the schools, we want to show the possibilities of music as a form of expression and means of communication by offering students an interactive concert that they participate in and design together with us.

We believe that our work with digital tools can stimulate the student's confidence in their own ability to make music and create an interest in developing their own creativity. They can also be a great help in communicating the student's own musical thoughts and ideas as no prior knowledge is needed.

Moment:

During our visit we will touch on the following points:

Improvisation with rhythms and tones - The student can use the music's traditional building blocks by improvising with his voice and with sound creation.

Rhythm, dynamics and pitch - The student is drawn to strong / weak sounds, low / high tones and slow / fast rhythms.

Music creation / performance - The students create the music themselves with us and the performance takes place in the moment.

Digital tools - We use tablets with associated music apps and demonstrate different ways to work creatively with them.
