Here's the group from the U.S., Russia, China, France, Italy, Germany and Orkney who put themselves under Louis Colaianni's spell as he waved a wand and conjured vowels and consonants from their inert and separate beauties into the pitch, resonance and active energy of human experience. Nothing proscriptive narrowed the boundaries of this voyage of discovery into the Joy of Phonetics. Louis has the ability to help us slip under the radar of the conscious mind to the realm where all sounds await the specific thought that will lead to their incarnation. Oh - and if that sounds a bit - well - weird and not very practical we ended up with a clear idea of the 10 to 15 steps essential for the acquisition of a dialect. Orcadian was the template and Rena was the accent donor. Everyone was bubbling with the excitement of new ideas and skills.
