RE: Special Time TTA CONFESSION BOOTH
My mom is on my ass about taking my son to church this morning - and last night before bed my son said, "Remember Mom, we have to go to church in the morning." He's too young to understand why I would have him lie to Nana, much less be able to pull it off. There's an atheist "church" I just learned about - we may go there this morning before I take him to the science museum - I don't think he'll catch the difference between playing at his church vs this one.

Unless it snows, in which case I totally have my excuse for why we didn't go...

I just spent half an hour trying to keep myself interested and involved while 10 smart, talented kids played their hearts out. I clapped enthusiastically for them. But was bored bored bored…

Because rhythmic based music is amongst the most highly complex on earth. And a symphony is not a symphony without a percussion section.

Add to that he history. The tambourine alone can be traced back 5000 years.
The idea that percussion is for savages and was born of the conservatories in Europe and slave trade.

Shall I go on?

Yes, yes, yes, agreed to all of that. I love percussion as part of a band or orchestra or jazz band or rock band, etc.

But this was close to thirty minutes of just percussion pieces. Not pieces with other instruments and percussion. Interesting to listen to for five minutes, not so interesting for the next 25.

The problem could be that there just aren't a lot of good composers writing for percussion ensemble, or that the conductor wasn't sure about what pieces to choose, since this was the first time this festival has ever had a percussion ensemble. What, in your opinion, are some really interesting percussion ensemble pieces?

Okay. I forced myself to listen to the entire thing. Who else did that? My face was all tightened up from squinting in pain. But the grand finale was something to behold!

When he said this song has brought him a certain amount of fame, Dude wasn't lying!

Maybe there is a Church of Satan nearby that you can take him too.

You heard the wrong band. 30 minuets of Zakir Hussain is heaven. The same with Giovanni Hidalgo and Changuito. You are attacking a form with roots dating back thousands of years. How old is your instrument? How many gigs exist for that one? I don't see many advertised.


I understand highly syncopated rhythms can be difficult for those raised in 4/4 CAN BE DIFFICULT.Perhaps read Portraits in rhythm b Anthony Cirone to get a better ide. And that concerns orchestral snare drum only.. However some of those other time signatures can be astounding. Imagine a rhythm with one bar of 102/8 next to another 33/16. Welcome to Indian rhythms.

Your ideas are based in racism and the slave trade. Having studied ethnomusicology I hold your ideas in contempt. The Yoruba people use the bata drum to tell stories. It is in fact a language. Can you claim that of your instrument? And their music is the basis of the most money making music on earth. heavy metal, pop, RnB, funk etc all come from those rhythms.





How about a batucada? You're bored by this?





How about Santana's rhythm section?





How about some African music?





You have a fully professional percussion instructor on this site. I would laugh at this were I to tell my friend who leads the Sydney symphony percussion section about this attitude.

Modern pop is driven by a drum section ll played by one guy. Show some respect.
Your instrument could fade away and nobody would notice.

VIVA LE PERCUSSION! Smile

NOTE: I am heavily affected by drugs, So take this with a grain of salt.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

You're utterly mischaracterizing my comments and my attitude, Banjo. There were plenty of percussionists playing in the band and orchestra part of the festival. I have as much respect for percussionists as for any other musicians. But a boring piece is a boring piece. The band had one boring piece and two interesting pieces. ,I was bored through it. The orchestra had no boring pieces--some years they do, and some years they don't. This year, they didn't.

For the record, I've been bored/annoyed by highly competent musicians in orchestras, string quartets, bands, sax quartets, clarinet ensembles, etc. As an audience member, you try to be engaged, but you can't always, no matter how I tried.

Saying this percussion ensemble was boring is not disrespecting percussionists or percussion.

But as you made no effort to try to understand my point, even when I clarified, and instead attacked, so:

fuck off and fuck you. I'm not going to have anything more to do with you.

RE: Special Time TTA CONFESSION BOOTH
Old confessions? Here you go finally getting it off my chest! I was maybe 12 or 13 and our whole group of friends were playing in our tree fort! Jackie Moore a prepubescent girl and Josie Nelson another were part of our group. Same age as me. One said to the other. "Let's go and do that with the puppies." Someones asked "What?" and they answered innocently "Nothing.'' I had no idea what their nothing was so followed them surreptitiously to the shed where I knew the puppies were. They were only a couple of weeks old and their eyes were not open yet. There were cracks in the side boards of the shed and I peeked in and saw the girls both slide up their T-shirts and pick up two blind puppies each and attach them to their nipples. The puppies tried very hard to nurse, and I had my first ever erection and went into our own garage and stroked off for my very first time. Is there any absolution for my sin? Or do I get reported for kiddie porn now?

Anomalistic or animalistic? Consider
