Sign in to view read count


Local saxophonist Skerik (Critters Buggin, Dead Kenny Gs, Garage a Trois, Syncopated Taint Septet, Roger Waters, Les Claypool, etc) will physically appear at Seattle's Georgetown Drum School on December 2 at 7:00 p.m. He will bring his latest electronics set up that allows him to efficiently change timbres, sounds and directions.

Skerik will demonstrate signal path, unity gain and survival in the electronic music world, meaning survival techniques using any sound system found in any club, theater, church or cult headquarters. From microphones to monitors and everything between, mysteries will be unveiled. Live playing with local drummer D'vonne Lewis as well as other special guests will occur. Random tips of all types will be brought forth for:

  1. Saxophonists: acoustic and rhythmic techniques will be demonstrated.
  2. Electronically curious DJs, musicians, seeking new signal paths, effects and monitoring techniques.
  3. Aspiring musicians wondering what back stages are really like, and what to say if someone asks you to license your hot new single.
  4. Non-performing fans of music looking for insight into the mystery of creation.

Additionally, free Electro Voice PL80a microphones will be given away to 5 students by a random ticket drawing during the class.

Where: Seattle Drum School Georgetown (1010 S. Bailey, Seattle, WA, Tel: 206.763.9700)
When: December 2, 2009, 7 p.m.
Cost: $10
