Helsinki Soundpainting Ensemble
The first soundpainting ensemble in Finland.
Soundpainting is the live composing sign language created by New York composer Walter Thompson for musicians, dancers, actors, poets, and visual artists working in the medium of structured improvisation. At present the language comprises over 750 gestures that are signed by the Soundpainter indicating the type of improvisation desired of the performers. Direction of the composition is gained through the parameters of each set of signed gestures.
