CAB - Composition, Arrangement, Bandleading

CAB is an intensive project exploring the GENERATIVE MUSICIAN and the CO-CREATIONAL MUSICAL PROCESS.

Students and teachers gather together to explore the roles of ARTIST and MUSICIAN

The teams work with the student's original material in the band rooms. On top of that everybody explores the "songwriting-process" going deep into writing hook-lines, creating bass-lines, sharing ideas, writing stories, flow-writing, essence-writing and making chord progressions. Some inputs during the week are process-orientated and others product-orientated.
Some of the song-writing-material is brought into the band-rooms and finalized into beautiful songs in beautiful arrangements, ending the week with a concert with original music and lyrics.

The first session of the project took place in Oulu in November 2015, the second and third sessions Aalborg in April 2017 and April 2018

Project consortium:
Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus/Aalborg
Oulu University of Applied Sciences
Metropolia University of Applied Sciences
Danish National Academy of Music
Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre
Latvian Academy of Music
