It´s definitely not every day that one gets to be on iTunes!!
This is the podcast of the founder of Timani, Tina Margareta Nilssen, about embodied musicianship and explorations into the vast landscape of music, mind and body.
I was very honored to be interviewed about my experiences with exploring musical expression faced with the experience of growing up with a body that didn´t (and sometimes doesn´t) seem to have quite the same agenda as the ego, and how the need for artistic expression sometimes can seem to overwhelm our own body and challenge the limits of expression we think we can allow ourself.
Miriam Hlavaty is a composer, pianist, Timani teacher and a listening expert. She went through her studies at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo with chronic tendinitis, yet a deep wish to express music. Now at the age of 40, her journey has left her with tons of wisdom that I would have loved to hear as a student myself. She is now an expert of the body and playing music. She writes a blog, gives workshops and lectures to help musicians all around the world to change their physical coordination to prepare them for playing music in a healthy way.
