Stage Prog Drum Session Les mesures asymétriques, l’improvisation, la technique de double grosse-caisse
Durée 7 heures
Horaires : de 10h30 à 13h et de 14h à 18h30
Tarif : 90€
Au cours de ce stage nous aborderons les techniques principales popularisées par le style Prog. Des années 70 à aujourd’hui, à cheval entre la fusion, le métal et le rock, ce style a porté au devant de la scène des grands noms de la batterie tels que, Billy Cobham, Bill Bruford, Neil Peart, Terry Bozzio, Mike Portnoy, Mike Mangini. De cet esprit musical créatif nous étudierons certaines mesures asymétriques, l’improvisation, la technique de double grosse-caisse et définirons ensemble les éléments principaux permettant à chacun de progresser dans cet univers moderne et sans limite. Pour base de travail, nous aurons des playback avec et sans batterie et les partitions correspondantes.
As a drummer I’ve been asked many times to play on different types of records, today after 20 years of experience I propose online drum sessions.
My personal drum studio is equipped with the most recent recording technology. Using Pro Tools, Universal Audio interface, Universal Audio Plug’ins, Midas pre-amps and different types of microphones, I can deliver high quality drum tracks for your own projects.
To everyone, our fans in the US, our close supportive friends throughout the years, all venues involved
We are very sad and bitter to announce that for the second time this year, we won’t be able to tour the US due to administration issues.
To cut a long story short, we applied way in advance to get a P1 visa, which is required for all foreign bands to tour the US. To this day, and though we applied seven months ago (!), we did not receive any information apart from “your request and petition have been received and processed”.
We were due to perform in October, from the 5th til the 26th, and most venues had kindly postponed our April previousely scheduled tour (canceled for same reasons…), and we’d like to thank them warmly for their support, and to apologize for this insane situation.
It is impossible for us now to organize flights, interviews at the US embassy with such a tight schedule, since we still did not get ANY news from the US administration…
People at our beloved tour management, Blue Mouth Promotions, must be thanked here too for hours and hours of work, phone calls, and energy spent.
This is defintely a depressing situation for a band which has toured the US about 7 times already, built up a loyal and awesome fanbase, has a US record company, and is unable to simply come up and perform its music.
We hope things will evolve in the future for good, and that another chance will be given to us.
But at the time we are writing this message, the overall feelings are frustration and bitterness.
