It turned out that soundpainting was a perfect fit both with the Playground Ensembles penchant for avant-garde and Kehns yen for audience participation. "For me, there is an inherent problem with classical music in that it's not interactive, he says. We wanted to start making music as a community with a transference of ideas taking place." The groups members started inviting people to come play with them at different places around town on the third Friday of every month; tonight at 6:30 p.m., theyll be at Artuvus Studios, 2690 West Barberry Place.
To soundpaint with the Playground Ensemble, all you need to do is show up with an instrument or just in full voice, and be prepared to get a quick rundown of the soundpainting gestures. Admission is free, whether youd like to perform or just watch. For more information, visit www.playgroundensemble.org.
