Zelday Karssen – Dutch Didgeridoo Day
Workshop ( 3 hours ) :
Playing didgeridoo is one of the most organic ways to produce sound with an instrument. It is literally the player who becomes an important part of the instrument itself. Didgeridoo playing is about technic, sound and consciousness of the body and spirit. In this workshop I will teach a specific rhythm, we break it down into fragments and have a close look what this language is about in several ways. Where playing fast seems to be exciting for many, and in a sort of way this also true. But by slow down everything a little we are so much more presence and aware of sound. When these are in line, we could speed up again.
“ The world can be so much more interesting and learn full when we take it from a slower perspective temporarily, so it is with sound as well.”
The workshop is for all levels. Although we will go into more advanced techniques, it is also interesting for the players that are at the beginning path of didge playing. This because of the learn full view about the possibility s of this instrument.
