Matsuri Crashers battle structures ver 20111127a

March 11, 2012 will be the SoCal debut of the Matsuri Crashers battle! More than a dozen players have signed up to participate and we’ve had a great time practicing thus far. We will each be developing a solo to fit the “battle structure” of our choosing. There are currently six structures, named after Los Angeles freeways, each designed to allow a player to focus on some aspect of slant-drumming, from basics to new movements, rhythm and timing, to playing fast.

I’m pleased to announce we have completed rough drafts of the written scores and audio recordings of the structures! You can download the individual pieces below, or the full zip file containing everything.

We’ve been working on some exciting new moves and some basic-strike research and I’ll be posting more in the coming weeks. As always, if you would like to participate, contact me at kris at On Ensemble dot org.

Happy drumming!
