Two-time Grammy award winner Jacob Collier has made a name for himself for his inventive use of multi-part vocal harmonies in his one-man music videos, in which he also plays multiple instruments. This workshop provides musicians, novices and fans alike with a rare opportunity to hear the London-based singer, composer, arranger and producer speak about how he adapts and brings his multi-instrumental, multi-visual format to his stage performances.
Described in turn as a “prodigy” and a “phenomenon”, the talented millennial musician embraces technology enthusiastically in his music, constantly pushing the boundaries of what can be done in a live show. Collier will explain some of the unique technology he uses to achieve his signature vocal layering, including the custom-built harmoniser he uses in his performances. Attendees will also hear about his creative approaches to and interpretations of harmonies, which he will illustrate using the keyboard.
A masterclass not to be missed by music aficionados!
