On Tuesday night, we took part in a workshop which was led by Laura Bowler where we viewed some of her work. I felt like she was a very charismatic person and taught us to think about music in a new way – through movement.

She started off with teaching us all a group warm up which was both strange and funny and put us all in a good mood. After, she showed us some of her work and how she finds inspiration and I especially found it interesting and inspirational how she sailed for a month just to compose a piece of music. I also found it interesting when she demonstrated how she incorporates movement into music and showed us a few examples – my favourite was the man playing the trumpet.

Finally she showed us various activities such as a trust exercise which was interesting and made us think in a different way.

Overall, I really liked Laura’s workshop and had a lot of fun and she made us all think about music in a different way.
