Wave Variation: Glissando
This is the seventh vocal exercise from the Resonance LAB, Wave Variation: Glissando.
This is a new variation on the Waves exercise with long, Single Tones (exercise 5). It takes place in a similar setting as previous wave exercises: 4 of 5 groups are spread around the space with a maximum of 10 people in each group including a leader. A leader provides a tone to their group. Instead of introducing it softly or starting the tone abruptly with their group, the tone is now the beginning of a glissando. For now, make sure that the glissando has a clear starting tone and a landing tone, so from one pitch to another (up or down). A gesture which helps the leader to communicate with their group is by creating a timeline with their hands.
