The Music of the Gong (All levels training) With Mike Tamburo, Thomas Orr Anderson and Mike Deaton
Join Mike Tamburo, Thomas Orr Anderson and Mike Deaton for an exploratory and experiential three day training that will deepen one's gong practice and takes participants to a new level in our playing and our understanding of working with gong sound and gong music. The focus of this training is making music with gongs in a group. The ‘Music of the Gong’ training invites the player to deepen their connection to the gong as a musical instrument capable of having broad effects on consciousness and asks the player to move beyond protocols into a music of the moment. Mike will immerse participants in a series of creative exercises, group improvisations and meditative listening experiences. We will refine playing techniques, explore rhythm and dynamics, strengthen our listening and improvisational skills, learn loose composition and deepen our personal sonic vocabulary. As a group, we will explore blending our playing with multiple gongs and other instruments (singing bowls, bells, strings) and other musicians in the sonic field. We will compose and improvise together as a group. All levels welcome.
