Odd Times for Musicians

Have you ever:

Found yourself mystified by beat structures that don't conform to standard 2/4, 3/4, 4/4 meters? OR: Wished that you could play in 7 without racing through an 8 with your fingers crossed? And thought- there must be a way to get a flow happening, to GROOVE?

Odd time signatures (also referred to as Additive Rhythm) have been in existence ever since the First Bard inadvertently dropped or added a beat and thought, "Wow, that's cool! I've gotta work this into my show!"

These patterns have been in use in Balkan, Indian, and Middle Eastern musics for millennia, and are now being embraced in Western Classical, Jazz, and Pop to some degree.

The five-hour workshop is open to players of all instruments who have at least a basic working knowledge of rhythm. The material will be presented by means of simple percussion instruments, voice, movement and body percussion.

The workshop fee is 1000 Čk for five hours with a one-hour lunch break.

Saturday, June 16, 11:00 a.m. to  5:00 p.m.

Studio DanceLab, U Zvonařky 9, Praha 2
