Repertoire workshop 'Drumming' with Igor Shyshko

Drumming is based on the music of the minimalist composer Steve Reich. The piece is a complex formal construction using a single basic phrase which is transformed in many ways. In the workshop, I will teach the phrase material and we will explore some of the principles which were used to construct it. The students will then make their own transformations of the phrase following the ideas used during the creation. In this way, we will work with retrograde, phase shifts and partnering all starting from the same basic phrase but resulting in new and varied transformations.
