BMAC hosts free soundmaking workshop

BRATTLEBORO — Skidmore College professor Adam Tinkle will offer SoundMind, a free workshop in aural attention and participatory soundmaking, at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center on Thursday, July 11, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibit “Angus McCullough: Coincidence Control,” SoundMind combines meditation, sensory awareness, and aesthetic activation of the breath, body, and voice.

Individually, in pairs, and as a group, participants will explore resonance and vibration through touching, listening, and collaborative creation. Attendees should wear comfortable clothes and bring an open mind and a willingness to vocalize.

“I'm interested in ways of forming community,” Tinkle said in a news release. “Of overcoming our natural tendency in this day and age toward individuation, all being in our own space and on our own phones. Using our voices together in the same space is a powerful reminder that we have the option of being together.”

The workshop will take place in what was once the ticket office of Brattleboro's Union Station, now BMAC's Ticket Gallery, which currently houses McCullough's “Coincidence Control.” The site-specific installation presents an alternative to standardized time through video, sound art, artist books, drawings, and an interactive time capsule that visitors are welcome to enter.
