Swarming Sound Orchestra


This is a simple game/energizer to practice listening, team-building, concentration, and co-creation. It also teaches us collective leadership, meaning that we lead together through being attentive to how we together are moving, following, opposing and bystanding.

Begin by standing in a circle, shoulder to shoulder, with your eyes closed.

"We are now going to make a voice orchestra together. Whoever feels the calling starts a tone, repetitive sound or rhythm (with the voice) - Still with your eyes closed listen to the others sounds and one by one start to add sounds that complement the other sounds. You can also copy a sound that you like. - A sound Orchestra will develop. At any point, you can change your sound, increase/decrease your volume. Let's play with it and see where it takes us. "

Variation: SOUNDSCAPE - In (small) groups you make a soundscape from a theme: every group improvises for a few minutes and then agrees on a (short) sequence. - With closed eyes you listen to each other's soundscapes - Examples of themes: party, morning, evening, peace, jungle, the moon, etc
