Being able to share knowledge and expertise with colleagues is essential for the development of an independent professional artist. In performance arts such as theater and dance, concrete methods and strategies for peer-to-peer feedback are widespread. Within contemporary music practice, however, the topic has not been given much formal attention. For her feedback workshop at the Darmstadt Summer Course Heloisa Amaral is adapting a method for actors and visual artists created by philosopher Karim Bennamar for the DasArts School in Holland. In addition to teaching musicians specific skills on how to give and receive objective and constructive feedback, the workshop will allow participants to present works in progress to open-minded colleagues.
