Kenzie Slottow is a flautist, composer, improviser, conductor, and recovering perfectionist. Her work is inspired by a love for story and collective creative experiences. By mixing styles and bringing performers and creators together, Kenzie aims to challenge preconceptions of what’s possible with sounds and our imaginations, and use her creations as conduits for empathy, compassion and inspiration. As a flautist and proponent of contemporary electronic music, Kenzie enjoys collaborating with electroacoustic composers and premiered works at concerts and conferences, and sharing the mindset and skills of sonic experimentation with students of all ages. Current projects include conducting virtual chamber improvisation sessions, live scoring virtual improvised plays, hosting her livestream show Flute Loops And…, and learning to sit still for more than 5 minutes. Kenzie earned her BM at the University of Michigan and MM at the University of Texas, both in classical flute performance. Learn more at www.kenzieslottow.com.
About MFML Virtual Summer experience:
The Mother Falcon Music Lab is excited to bring our programming online!
With so much to learn and share, we’re ensuring participants are able to stay in the moment and centered on content. Each Artist Instructor is supported by an additional instructor in the zoom room to monitor needs, helping to field questions and assist with technical issues. Also, we are offering a group forum where you can post up questions and comments, connect with other peers/adults, and share ideas and projects!
The unique content of this course has been developed by experienced artists and instructors in a ground up, collaborative environment. We are passionate about what we do and the experiences we share with our community!
