Sean Hamilton Percussion Workshop
Hosted by Minicine?
Friday, Sept. 8, minicine? welcomes Sean Hamilton (Tampa, FL) for a solo percussion and electronics performance of his improvisational project, LOCI. On the walls, Bill Daniel (Houston, TX) will exhibit new work (Post Harvey) of his ongoing project, TOXXIC CITY DISPATCH. Doors open at 7:30. Edibles by GoGreenly. Suggested donation $5.
SEAN HAMILTON is a percussionist, composer, and improviser based in Tampa, FL. He brings to Shreveport his drum and electronics project, LOCI. This project features improvised compositions written to explore the symbiotic possibilities between acoustic and electronic sounds. Most often, the works create a form for improvising where the electronics interact with the drums through microphones on the drum kit or by creating their own “improvised” material generated using random numbers.
This project has been featured throughout the United States and in the United Kingdom, on WKCR-FM New York’s Afternoon New Music, at the University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum, the Orlando Fringe Festival, the Anxious Sound Series in New Orleans, and at the 2017 SEAMUS (Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States) National Conference. It has also been featured at colleges and universities including the University of Michigan, New York University, California State University Long Beach, and the University of Leeds.
PERCUSSION WORKSHOP: Sean Hamilton will offer a Percussion Workshop at 6pm, Friday Sept. 8. This workshop will provide an overview of his LOCI project, what the electronics are and how they work, and an introduction to some music he finds especially vital to his artistic development. Sponsorship for this workshop has been provided by Innovative Percussion.
