Maya Felixbrodt ‘s residency, end of May, is a research of LMA with the focus on Effort Factors,in and through different perspectives of  experiencing music: composition, performance and audience.

Music is movement of sound in space. The prime manner of communication, preceding verbal communication, is the movement of our bodies.  Body and mind are two parts constructing a whole. The mind is usually assigned as the motor behind inner intention, which portrays one’s movement. Inner intention in daily life, specifically in this case – in music, sound and its composing, production and experience, can be reached directly through a physical and movement approach.

The research introduces and explores with musicians and audience (of any genre and practise) methods for use of Laban Movement Analysis in music. Alongside the theoretical knowledge , in order to explore direct  relation to sound, practical exercises are applied, with instrumentalists, vocalists, composers and general audience.

The research focuses on the Efforts branch of LMA – Time, Flow , Space and Weight and their combinations – States and Drives.

She has been researching in the last two years in all aspects of her musical and artistic activity : Viola playing, composition, working in processes with ensembles, musicians and artists collectives, improvisation, concerts programming, education and work with children. It started as a master research during master composition studies in the Royal Conservatory, The Hague, supervised by LMA specialist Alexandra Baybutt (UK) and concluded with a thesis. Since then she has continued the research on her  own.
