SIFA 2018 | Jacob Collier on Harmony & Groove


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 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 turns 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. He will also share his creative approaches to, and interpretations of harmonies.

To fully benefit from this session, participants are encouraged to attend Collier's performance on 27 April 2018, Victoria Theatre at 8pm. Tickets are available at www.sistic.com.
