Exploring Creativity with Mark Guiliana
Mark Guiliana has become recognized as one of the world’s leading drummers, admired and in demand across the spectrum from jazz to rock to electronic music for his rhythmic sophistication, creative impulse and individual sound. JazzTimes aptly proclaimed: “Guiliana, a technical master with a rare sense of musicality, has over the past decade become one of the most influential drummers of his generation.” The verve and precision of Guiliana’s drumming was a primer mover of Blackstar, David Bowie’s multiple Grammy Award-winning final album. Guiliana teamed with keyboardist Brad Mehldau and has also collaborated with such artists as guitar hero John Scofield, Soundgarden/Pearl Jam drummer-songwriter Matt Cameron, neo-soul singer-songwriter Meshell Ndegeocello, or jazz bassist Avishai Cohen. In this course Mark is essentially talking about exploring your own creativity and finding ways and tools, which will help you to build your own ideas on the instrument and most importantly how you can inject those ideas into the music you are playing. Two great solos and an interesting 40 minute interview about Marks life and career in New York rounds up this segment of another world class drummer. Enjoy!
