In his work­shop, the stu­dio drum­mer, beat pro­du­cer and aut­hor will fo­cus on the drum­set as an “an­chor”, but the main to­pic will be the con­struc­tion of crea­tive beats. This in­clu­des the selec­tion of in­spi­ring sounds, sup­po­sed glit­ches and play­ing tech­ni­ques as well as their ar­ran­ge­ment and the ques­tion, which
dy­na­mic and to­nal po­si­tion they should take in the so­nic spec­trum. Should there be time and in­te­rest, Max will also ad­dress the re­cord­ing and pro­duc­tion aspects of his work.

The fol­lowing aspects will be co­ve­red by Max:
Play­ing on dif­fe­rent sur­faces: sound, bounce, po­si­tion.
Thin­king not pat­tern- but sound-ba­sed
Sound lengths: short or long sounds?
Sound pit­ches: high or low sounds?
Sound vo­lu­mes: loud or soft? Ef­fects on playing/movements/percussion tools
Sounds in con­text: “bin­ding sounds” and “main sounds”.
Li­king noise and even em­pha­si­zing and cul­ti­vat­ing it if necessary.
