Strategies and Techniques of the Creative Act with Andrew McKenzie


Monday 24.11/14 – Friday 28.11/14
10:00 -16:00

For children of all ages

As life in the modern world quickens, shallows, intensifies in quantity and not quality, having the tools to take control of perception means that you can deal with situations which until now, you thought were beyond your power to control, leading to a place where the deepest desires and their manifestation in the world are available in a state of real Freedom.

This workshop deals with techniques for Time Distortion, Self-Hypnosis, Power Focus, Deep Concentration, and new ways of thinking fused with the best of the old.  This workshop is about your inner world as tool for knowledge and inspiration.

At the end of the week, you will be using a set of tools that will be the difference that makes the difference in your life, whatever you do, and you will be equipped to take part in an unprecedented performance using the techniques you have learned lasting 14 hours – taking you to places that you never actually even thought about dreaming of!

Andrew M. McKenzie, core of The Hafler Trio, Instructional Designer, Mood Engineer and Maker of Strange Things guides you through the processes that will allow you to take control of the power in your life, from the basics to indications of where the advanced may well lie for you. Drawing on over 30 years of experimentation (learning painfully so you don’t have to), research, practice and practical implementation with a wide range of disciplines and techniques dealing

with the REAL issues of power and control, a new relationship from a new set of perspectives with Technology and the Self becomes not only possible, but extremely desirable.

This workshop and performance will show you what you know, and what you don’t know that you know!

No musical training or technical knowledge necessary.

As an act of creative focus and endurance, the workshop participants will be compelled to use their heightened attentional skills to perform a minimalistic piece which iterates over time. Their inputs are subject to extreme delays, so it is not possible to “perform” in the normal way with immediate aural feedback.

Please note that there must be total silence, and absolutely no use of camera, phones, laptops or other communication / recording devices in the performance space.
