To celebrate Holloween/Samhain/Dia de los Muertos, this magic time of year when the God and Goddess change places, the dead walk the streets, and we all dress up to reveal our inner most fantasies, we are going to try something completely unprecedented at Spark. A night of no drums!!! For this one Spark circle we will be inviting in all the other instruments, and asking you to check your drums at the door. Breaking out of our usual routine challenges us to find different paths to engage, to listen in new and deeper ways.
Question and Answers:
No drums? Really? And what is a drum anyway?
Yes, really. To keep it simple, a drum is anything with a membrane that you play by hitting. Random percussion toys are still cool.
Other instruments? Cool, can I bring my Tuba?
Keep in mind, the idea is still to create music that drives the circle and supports dancing and singing. Really loud instruments might not work in the space. Keep it acoustic. Some other MC might experiment with amplified music someday, but that's not this circle.
Can I come in my Halloween costume?
Sure, why not?
