VoPap Finland – Improvised collective singing sessions / concerts led by Merzi Rajala.
VoPap Finland is Merzi´s new project for all singers interested in
improvising and applying Vocal Painting in collective circle singing.
This project is planned to take place every now and then, in different locations in Finland.
The participatory singers can be varying from time to time, based on singers ability to join,
both geologically and schedulewise.
Project aims in offering the singers from all around the country to join ”pop up VoPa sessions”
The purpose of the sessions is to come together, enjoy singing together,
to create music that can be sung without sheets or ability to sight-read music.
To create small themes and music in the moment,
music that any singer from any cultural background, any language or musical history could join.
Requierements for the singers who wish to join:
Singer is experienced in choral / vocal group singing
To join VoPap sessions singers need to know basics of Vocal Painting signs such as:
sing, stop, step, create an ostinato, harmonize, energise, volume, copy – clone
This can easily be done by an VoPa application available online.
There will be a small attendance fee (10 -15€ / singer) for the sessions to cover the costs.
We are also working on getting financial support to the project.
