SCHLAGART-ARTE PERCUSIVO INTEGRAL LIBRE
a researching platform on phenomenology of percussiveness
Percussiveness is related to vibrational phenomena in Nature. It exists in all beings in the Observable Universe. It materializes through physical molecular movement, manifesting itself as sound, through air molecules, creating the illusion of rhythmic patterns, through visual moving objects and percussive action and periodization in time-space. It became a concept of practicing percussion through observing Natural phenomena, and the infinite orchestrated illusion occurring in forests, oceans, mountains, skies and clouds, urban jungle life, and so on.
My art, is an art of integration through observation, through the illusion of percussive sound and physical movement.
SchlagArt- Arte Percussive Integral Libre. Since 2001.
Conceived as a creative platform and researching environment into new percussive poetics evolving within the compositional experiences that nourishes from the very basic and elemental understanding of percussiveness phenomenology as observed in Nature.
It began as an explorative and experimental path, within the diverse and rich world of percussion, and also, as a point of departure state of universal human expression and communication
manifesting values and idiosyncrasy through percussive elements, and as an integration of a wide spectrum of a broad spectrum of languages, intuitive thinking, audiovision... Life itself.
Life evolves in cycles, and cycles are rhythm and movement in all Nature; is change, evolution and transformation. So it makes sense that percussive art emulates that same life cycling nature of unpredictable evolving pattern procedures.
Arte percusivo integral libre is a foundation concept for study and practice within the core concept of percussiveness phenomenology. And it means, an endless re cycling practice, a way of seeing, listening, sensing, thinking and understanding, the practice of becoming percussion act, as an embodied way of living and experiencing the being here.
SchlagArt is a non-systemic beyond methodology. It is in complex system, and operates in a continuous researching mode, renewed understanding and knowledge; intertwining musical concepts and ideas deepened in humanities studies.
Exponentially, the master works by XX Century composers, the repertoire for chamber percussion music, was an essential step into the SchlagArt architectural construction and evolution since its beginnings.
