Songwriting as Storytelling
A masterclass with Joey Ayala
11 and 13 October 2017 | 6-9 PM
Session 1: Words
Share examples of songs and the stories behind them.
Share writing exercises, techniques and frameworks and take you through them to produce what could be the words of your own original song.
Session 2: Music
Experience the basic elements of music together and see how, in harmony with your words from the previous session, a song may emerge.
Joey Ayala is a singer-songwriter much-awarded for his songs’ relevance of subject matter – environment, society, values - and his use of indigenous instruments and influences in his recordings and performances. The uniquely-Filipino elements of his work led one music scholar to quip “if Joey Ayala didn’t exist, we’d have to invent him.” His contributions to contemporary Philippine culture have been recognized by a wide range of institutions and are evidenced by a number of awards.
