Ritmica: A Unique Approach to Rhythm

Thursday / November 1, 2012 / 1:00 p.m.
David Friend Recital Hall
921 Boylston Street
Boston
MA
02115

The purpose of this workshop is to develop a deeper concept of rhythm as a musical element, moving beyond arithmetic and counting to something that is more melodic and intuitive. The focus of this system is counterpoint instead of vertical relationships. Something different and more musical arises out of combining independent rhythmic parts in a way that emphasizes their independence: as voices, each one with its own characteristics and personality, happening simultaneously. Presented by Rogério Boccato

Using various types of rhythmic exercises, this workshop will work on the students' ability to concentrate, improving inner discipline, flexibility, leading students to feel rhythm and to internalize it in a deeper way, helping them to adapt their attention to new kinds of associations and relationships. In this way, the musician can overcome arithmetical challenges, “deconditioning” his response to rhythm, leading to a fully aware musical execution. It is also part of the program to explore the application of the rhythmic exercises to individual instruments, through experimental pieces composed in class. Bring your instrument

Brazilian percussionist and educator Boccato plays in projects led by some of today’s leading jazz players, among them Danilo Perez, John Patitucci, Edward Simon, and David Binney. He is featured on two Grammy-nominated albums: Kenny Garrett’s Beyond The Wall and John Patitucci's release Remembrance, alongside Joe Lovano and Brian Blade. Boccato has been a faculty member of the Percussion department of The Hartt School (University of Hartford) teaching Brazilian Percussion and Ritmica, and recently joined the faculty of the Manhattan School of Music and Montclair State University. He has been presenting clinics on Brazilian music, focusing on traditional Brazilian rhythms and styles applied to the drum set and to jazz combo, which have been enthusiastically received at universities around the United States, Mexico, and Portugal.

Crossover Kidz is a hip-hop duo based out of Boston, that continues to electrify stages all over New England. After meeting their freshmen year of college, Matt [MuZ] and Droobee found themselves producing, writing, and recording songs right out of their dorm room closet. After only weeks of working together, they established themselves as the Crossover Kidz and began to plan for a live concert. Pulling together a band, instead of using the typical DJ or click track, and using a few weeks to practice, their debut show was a huge success; filling the venue to capacity with more than 250 people in attendance.

Red Oblivion is a rock band based out of Boston, with backgrounds in a multitude of styles including classical, metal, world music, pop, and electronic. Red Oblivion blends a traditional lineup with the heaviness of amplified cello in an evolving passionate collaboration.
