From Istanbul, with Misirli Ahmet, Turkish master of Darbuka, Fabrizio Cassol discusses his processes and his approach to combining different rhythms from specific cultures and creating rhythmical improvisations around these patterns, in order to ultimately help you create a unique style and nurture your own collective composition.
Fabrizio Cassol invites you to:
-Feel the emotion behind each rhythmical expression to allow yourself to be influenced by new techniques.
-Develop your skills in combining and organising rhythms collectively.
-Use symbolic figures to approach your understanding and knowledge of rhythms.
-Gain more creativity and openness while interacting with other cultures.
The series proposed to consider the synchronisation of different rhythmical visions and go beyond the limits of musical styles in order to create new complementarities between these different styles. An example of this potential complementarity is the combination of Indian rhythmical ideas whose lyrical approach involves rhythms happening in succession, and polyrhythmic African creations where rhythms are superposed on one another. In this first module, we have been welcomed to Istanbul by the MIAM Istanbul Technical University, where we meet Misirli Ahmet, the famous Darbouka player and composer. Rhythmical harmony offers viewing and listening angles, as well as an understanding of different universes reaching out to one another in search of a connection.
