1-4 pm

This workshop on Composition, Improvisation and the Creative Process will examine the ways that we sabotage our creativity and productivity and will offer practical ways to overcome the roadblocks we place in our way. Using examples from his own and other artists’ catalogs Colpitts will develop a strategy for remaining creative in the face towering indifference. “No One Cares” presents a counterintuitive strategy for establishing the boundaries around your creative process that gives you the strength and inspiration to continue your work despite lack of approval, vindication or encouragement.

Kid Millions is the founder and drummer of the projects Oneida and Man Forever and has performed and collaborated with a wide range of incredible artists including Yo La Tengo, Laurie Anderson, J Spaceman, William Basinski, So Percussion, Rhys Chatham, Royal Trux, Broomberg and Chanarin, Boredoms and many more.
