re:percussions is a series of events featuring drummers and drummer led projects that expand the parameters of the percussive medium curated by Grady Gerbracht and sponsored by the Nomadic Museum of Sonic Arts. http://www.nomosa.org
“You’ve never heard (or seen) a drummer like Ravish Momin. Whether he’s playing the drum set with his hands, seamlessly fusing his drums with a laptop full of electronic sounds, or creating vocal percussion, Momin is reinventing his instrument. ” (Rochester Times, 3/11) His goal with “Solo_Tarana” is to create a live hybrid-DJ set, one that combines acoustic and electronic beats along with melodic and ambient structures, while employing elements that are through-composed as well as improvised.
Founded by drummers Grady Gerbracht and John Loggia, IDEOSYNCHRONIC plays spontaneous or loosely arranged compositions with a cinematic sensibility. Explosive percussion and harmonic drones intertwine as they use concepts such as synchronic asymmetry to promote the dramatic unfolding of sonic events. With frequent collaborators and special guests (TBA), they will interpret one of Gerbracht’s visual scores.
