What is Interactive Drumming?

Rhythm Revolution based in Chicago IllinoisInteractive drumming is a group of people creating and sharing a rhythmical and a musical experience. The instruments used are based upon outcomes and objectives for the group set buy client representatives or the intentions of the participants.  These instruments can be: body percussion, voice, percussion instruments including; drums, triangles, cowbells, woodblocks, rasps, shakers, Boomwhacker music tubes, handbells, chimes, gongs and homemade found sounds . We use various seating formats to optimize listening and communicating. We believe everyone is an equal participant with no person in the ensemble any more or less important which is a great metaphor for team building and creating group synergy. The sustained repetition of the pulse results in a rhythmic phenomenon called rhythmic entrainment. Entrainment uplifts the self physically, mentally and emotionally. There is a calming effect on the body and an energizing effect on the spirit.
