Vocal Painting

With Jim Daus Hjernøe

The Intelligent Choir (TIC) refers to his musical philosophy and concept of training choir conductors to inspire choristers to share responsibility for the musical process. The concept includes a pedagogical and artistic methodology with Vocal Painting signs as a headliner. The Vocal Painting (VOPA) system offers an advanced set of tools to lend shape and structure to improvisation and the traditional repertoire in any choir. Both conductors and singers can implement live arranging, live composing, re-arranging, re-composing, and using contrasting elements such as shifting keys, modules and time signature, etc., during a performance.
