Last week, Masary Studios attended and presented at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention. PASIC is a wonderful place to share ideas, connect with old friends, and make new memories, and it's been a pleasure to grow and learn with this community!
In our session, entitled "Beyond the Concert Hall, Igniting the Collaborative Spirit", we premiered two new pieces featuring our instrument to visuals trigger system. Samo mapped and projected onto the wall of the Sagamore Ballroom, while Ryan and I jammed on marimba, electronics, and drums. I was proud to be able to share a taste of our aesthetic, while also opening up about our process. We spoke about Waking the Monster, and how we've established our process as collaborators.
Unfortunately, I took a total of two photos!! These do not even scratch the surface of the experience...not to mention the great conversations with friends and mentors! Luckily, there will be more PASICs to document in the future! :)
Thanks to our wonderful sponsors that made the PASIC experience possible! I am THRILLED to share I have joined the Yamaha family as a performing artist. Yamaha instruments allow me to express my voice and push my creativity to the next level, and I am so happy to be on the team! Thank you, Yamaha!
