Songing With Our Ancestors – Voice Workshop with Johanna Peine and TOI
22/01/2022 - 14h - 18h

How much of jellyfish, fish or amphibian is still present in the human body and voice? In this workshop we try to get to the bottom of this question by exploring the movements of early phylo- and ontogenesis in connection with the sound of our voice. According to the phoniatrist J. Abitbol, the human larynx developed from the gills of fish. Likewise, our ears were already present in fish. So what distinguishes marine mammals like whales from other fish? Why can they sing? 
In a journey through the evolution of the voice, we will encounter these phenomena and questions in a practical way and at the same time unfold the potential of the voice. 
TOI will close the workshop by sharing some of its Ocean Conversations and song-making practices, i.e. its Polyphonic Protocols, and inviting the participants to take part in them.
