Dan Johnson - Ecstatic Drum Beats workshop & performance on Thursday 24th - Friday 25th November 2022

Nov 24th - 'Ecstatic Drum Beats' Percussion Workshop 3-5pm

EDB workshops combine elements of traditional ritual and trance drumming practices with modern approaches to movement, composition and improvisation. EDB workshops utilise various attention and awareness exercises to inspire new ways of thinking and approaches to music creation & performance. EDB workshops provide a space for people to challenge preconceived notions of what music 'is' and / or how it 'should be' whilst also strengthening existing and developing new community bonds.

Workshops are open to everyone and no prior experience or rhythmic knowledge is necessary. The activities promise fun & challenge in equal measure for professional or beginning musicians, along with anyone interested in creativity, movement, and connection

Nov 24 - 'Ecstatic Drum Beats' Evening Performance
Building on the spirit of the EDB workshops along with ideas explored in Dan's work with the Centre for Deep Listening, RPI, NY, the EDB ensemble will perform brand new pieces composed by Dan for percussion & the body, including several pieces created especially for the Shift performance space.
With emphasis on listening and trust, EDB performances aim to push the physical boundaries of performers and pose a challenge to audience attention spans. They embrace repetition, tradition and minor detail alongside spontaneity, ambiguity, and, at times, the absurd.
With a revolving lineup of collaborators and in the spirit of spontaneity, the EDB ensemble members remain unknown to Dan sometimes until the day of performance!
