Through the series, Thompson clearly outlines how to use Soundpainting. Topics covered in Workbook 1 include an introduction to the structure of the Soundpainting language; how to prepare an ensemble for Soundpainting; the basic 43 gesture and what each one means, how to use them, and how to physically sign them. Workbook 1 includes an instructional DVD showing how each gesture is signed and what response it elicits. There is also a performance by Walter Thompson and The Walter Thompson Orchestra included on the DVD.
