International Rhythm Course

The International Rhythm Course is a five day intensive program to solidify the fundamental expressive qualities of rhythm and explore the rich world of rhythmic complexities. The course is led by renowned percussionist B.C. Manjunath and composer/flutist Ned McGowan, professor of Advanced Rhythm and Pulse, and Composition at the Utrecht Conservatory. Special guest will be eminent Carnatic violinist Dr. Mysore Manjunath.

The Carnatic system of rhythm, with its practical approach to complexities, forms the basic method for both a foundation and a deep exploration of rhythm in music. Additional strategies for rhythm from Western perspectives will also be taught. While the course is primarily geared towards learning new rhythmic technique and approaches, participants will be also welcome to workshop their own music with the teachers. Throughout the week there will be a mixture of lectures, classes, workshops, and rehearsals with an opening concert on the first evening. Theory will be given and a deep understanding of the material in practice will be emphasized. One main goal of the course will be the learning, explanation and analysis of several of B.C. Manjunath’s solo compositions (see below).

Target audience

The Course is designed for professionals, college-level students, and experienced amateurs. Performers of all instruments and composers are welcome regardless of style (i.e. Classical, improvised or non-western musics). Existing ensembles and bands are welcome to apply as a group.

Course aim

Solidify the fundamental expressive qualities of rhythm and explore the rich world of rhythmic complexities in order to be applied to your own music.
