GRAND

    Vocal Warmup
    • coming together
    • singing to the space
    • passing car
    • trill
    Crash
      Group into o-oke, shime, okedo, and kane. Come up with something that resembles an automobile crash. We want it to be something that is structurally random; meaning it sounds random, but every player can play it exactly the same, repeatedly.
    Structure
      Crash + singing = done simultaneously
    • Crash 1 + low singing. After hearing 4 kane hits....
    • Crash 2 + med singing/passing cars. After hearing 4 kane hits...
    • Crash 3 + high singing, followed by trill build. After hearing 4 kane hits...
    • Clean single hit and then immediate silence (place hand on instrument to stop reverberation)
