28.10.2005 :- Percussion Workshop

We are planning to organize a percussion workshop in late November / early December. This workshop is to be given by Barak Schmool, artistic director of the F-IRE collective. Barak has played with Django Bates' big band, Bosco De Oliveira, Nana Tsiboe, Robert Mitchell and Hilaire Penda and is currently playing in Timeline, Meta Meta and Roots of Unity. The workshop would cover basic principles and techniques of percussion playing, how percussion music derives from dance and language and related topics. It would be very hands-on and practically oriented. It would take place on a Saturday morning at City College and last about three hours. The price per person depends on the number of participants, but we're aiming at about 7. If you're interested in this workshop, please e-mail our chairman Ralf.

Download it, listen to it, share it with your friends and family and maybe even make weird music of your own based on the sound files!
