About this course

Our workshop runs for two hours each day over two days. During this period, participants will create rhythm instruments from various materials and perform with them in a collective percussion performance.

ATÖLYE DETAYLARI

Our workshop runs for two hours each day over two days. During this period, participants will create rhythm instruments from various materials and perform with them in a collective percussion performance.

Why ecological?

So as to reconceptualize recycable materials as not being ‘trash’ and use them creatively as rhythm instruments. With this method, we believe we can convert an unproductive object into a vehicle of artistic production and create a new language that will help us express our creativity.

Why rhythmical?

Participants will be introduced to fundamental rhythms, be shown the rhythmic counting method and provided rhythmical perception/exercises will be done on the first day. On the second day, poly-rhythms will be introduced and these poly-rhythms will be performed by all in harmony in groups of two and three people. We will end our workshop with a jam session where we will relax, have fun and understand the importance of listening to other people with improvised rhythms.

What the Workshop Offers
  • Understanding fundamental rhythms/developing existing rhythmical understanding.
  • Developing collective-rhythmical action and sharing capabilities.
  • Rediscovering/making/using our bodies and rhythm instruments that we define as waste
  • An introduction to instrument production via ecological recycling
Materials Required for Workshop
  • Your rhythm instruments, if you have any
