Drum Lesson with Dalquister
This is a multi-media performance piece involving percussion (timpani, steel drum, tabla, marimba, vibes, drum set, and more), dance, juggling, and a bit of acting. This piece serves as the multi-percussion piece required for my Masters in Percussion. A childhood friend, Michael Dalquist, who played drums for the band Silkworm, died this past summer. I obtained some of his drum tracks from their producer in Chicago, Steve Albini. I wrote a piece and created an audio track to interact with during the live performance. The audio track features Michael~Rs drumming. It will be very important to document this performance with audio and video recordings.
