How many of us feel trapped by our own rhythmic habits when we improvise? Our rhythmic ideas fit neatly into the measures like nicely stacked boxes. We know our playing could be much freer and more exciting, but we just can’t seem to find a path to get there. Perhaps we’ve tried to introduce polyrhythms into our playing but find that things fall apart when attempt them. In this workshop we’ll explore polyrhythmic elements, and learn to assimilate them in an incremental process, whereby we can avoid the “brain meltdown” that can come from attempting a new polyrhythm all at once. The result is a rhythmic concept that is both freer and more solid.
