Nels Cline GUEST: The Sonic Aspects of Color, Texture, & Taste as They Relate to Songs & Improvisation

Sit in on Nels Cline’s sold out workshop as a guest! In this “audit” version of The Sonic Aspects of Color, attendees will be able to watch and listen as guests (but will not participate on mic or camera) while Nels conducts an in-depth workshop with his participants.

Wilco guitarist Nels Cline focuses on his experiences and ideas relating to the use of tones, tunings, and effects pedals and how they can heighten the experience of both player and listener. Drawing upon his decades of diverse endeavors, exploration, and polymath sensibility, Cline will offer insight and advice about how a sound, from the simplest and most direct to the most arcane and elaborately achieved, can take a song or a spontaneous moment of improvisation to striking, memorable places. While some degree of music theory/analysis will enter into his discussions, the informative exchange can be enjoyed by a musician at any level of achievement/experience who is fascinated by the possibilities and impact of unique sonic signatures and how we perceive and react to them.
