The Flow of Eight Notes
flussoottavi.jpg The content of this work has nothing to do with the study of technique. To explain the whys of a technique or a certain posture goes beyond the objective of this work. One can find lots of good methods for drums, some of which are truly very, very good. I, instead, here would like to accentuate a fundamental moment: The performance phase, that which occurs after a long apprenticeship, after the unnerving study of technique of the instrument. The contributions found inside this work are truly varied, of various nature and foundation. My inability to confront and overcome the obstacles arise prevalently from materialistic aspects which, (like has happened to the majority of my colleagues who have adopted traditional methods) is for me, evidently an incentive to confront them starting from faroff.
Actually, I felt the obligation to enter into the deep and go beyond the traditional the way of thinking. I experimented on myself, silencing the truth, that which one doesn’t say, stopping the energy, interrupting the flow. Inside this work I confronted the questions regarding the interruption of energy on more planes and often I was deliberately repetitive, especially on the aspect of man’s triarticulation. My professional and human experiences were written with awareness causing gaps to emerge, which forced me bit by bit to take note of the truths that I hid and never talked about.
Nowadays all of us need to stop and consider that our lives, from the beginning of the day until the evening when we go to sleep are governed by monsters: the news, advertisements, success, excessive identification with material things, money, cars, designer clothes, etc, etc. The rest, unconsciously seasoned by cynicism confuses our senses towards diversity, towards our awareness of our history, our family history, which is the history of the world and our origins, unique truth and healthy purity and morality. In other subjects beyond this, I am deliberately controversial, convinced that a healthy discussion on all these questions always opens doors in people of good and healthy will with true justice and right comprehension.
