Calling all drummers-both trained & seeking training

Postby zifra » Tue Oct 04, 2011 1:07 am

Welcome to the House of Joyous Thunder. At the 2012 burningman we will be a very large theme camp (We are looking for 50 or more) coming together to celebrate the joys of percussion. We will be inviting world class drummers and those who have never hit a beat. The idea is for the experienced folk to help those who need instruction so that everyone can join in the music.

The camp will have a very large shaded area with rugs and pillows to encourage the creation of spontaneous music. There will be room for both tent and RV camping. It will be placed in a location where drumming is not only appropriate but encouraged 24 hours a day! Classes for all levels will be arranged to encourage more participation.

Ideally this theme camp will be placed along the esplanade so that larger drum circles can spill across into the open playa as needed. In a camp this large we will welcome both those who will bring their own supplies and those who will join together in a collective kitchen.

The most important thing is to make this burningman a week of celebration of all forms of percussion and instruments that support percussion. To help one and all alike to feel the power of the drum, and to let souls soar.

If you would like to be a part of this collaboration please let me know.

That was what was missing from 2011... Lots of drums at OCF and Darling Ranch, but there were hardly any at the burn.

Will this be the freeform drifty kind of stoner drumming or the Johnny Kalsi off your butt and move type of drumming?

Sounds fun. Will there be drumkits too, or just hand drums? I'm a drummer, I always bring my kit and various hand drums/percussion to the playa, would love to drop by and play/teach.

I am hoping for the Johnny Kalsi version of drumming - not you standard drum circle meandering crap -



Now that shit is drumming..

Ask Ms Misa Blue - she'll set you straight on these guys.

You didn't need to start another thread. We're sort of anti-thread-proliferation around these parts.

Sadly the drum camp did not come together. Our efforts are now focused on the 100th Monkey Camp.

But we will have drums, come play with us!

Hi!
sorry to hear the drum camp didn't come together!
I'll find the 100th Monkey Camp and bring my repinique drum. I'm in for some samba or other brazilian percussion. Could teach a bit aswell.
Looking forward to meeting you guys out there!

Best,
Joost (Netherlands)
