Open to musicians of all levels and all instruments. Students invited to bring your instruments! Check out Glen Velez and Loire on YouTube "We invite Glen and Lori to Juilliard each year ... their unforgettable interactive presentation is one of those true milestones in the development of our students' musical consciousness. They walk into that room hearing things one way, and walk out afterwards forever changed in the way they hear music. Glen and Lori have truly expanded the musical world for hundreds of young Juilliard students." (Ray Lustig, Dma, Faculty of Literature and Materials, The Juilliard School)
Glen and Loire's innovative approach uses stepping, gesture and rhythm vocals as the basic tools for exploring pulse flow and time awareness. We then apply this knowledge to our instruments or voice in coached ensemble settings. This innovative approach uses body movement, drum language and vocal improvisation as the basic tools for exploring pulse flow and time awareness. Frame drums and shakers - essential shamanic instruments - help guide our sonic adventures. ( Glen Velez Signature Series drums and shakers will be provided.) This special workshop will include classes, performance, conversation, jam sessions and ensemble work. Acknowledging the importance of context and environment in discovering the inner voice of every musician, Your Rhythm, Your Life will take place in the ambience of a sonic and aesthetic setting that coaxes new sounds and ideas. Topics: ▪ What impact does body movement and spatial awareness have on our feeling for pulse, steadiness and the pure pleasure of rhythm? ▪ Can the different areas of our body influence how strongly we pulsate? ▪ Do your inner organs generate sound and pulse? ▪ How does rhythmically vocalizing change our perceptions? ▪ Is the space around our bodies capable of being "tuned" to a greater resonance ? ▪ What role does language play in our pulse exploration? Tools: ▪ Glen Velez Handance - simple body movements, combined with rhythmic cueing, rhythmic gestures and call/response interactions ▪ Overtone Singing - deep breathing while producing multiple tones ▪ Drum Language - Konnakol, the ancient vocal art from South India ▪ Clapping Patterns - creating steady pulse and recurring rhythm cycles ▪ Interactive Play - fun and energizing group improvisation ▪ Sacred Motif in Improvisation - using pulse to guide your improvisation Loire (Lori Cotler) "… jaw-dropping dexterity with her acrobatic vocalizing and rapid-fire articulation” - Chicago Classical Review Loire (aka Lori Cotler) has garnered an international reputation as one of the most captivating performers of our time. Using exotic rhythms as her muse, she executes with the human voice phrases that do not seem possible in their rhythmic speed and clarity. Loire's emotionally-charged melodic inventions and evocative percussion-driven interpretations of jazz standards and original compositions are informed by raw melismatic improvisations, jazz-scat and pop stylings, along with lightning-fast South Indian drum language. After earning a Bachelor of Music from Berklee College of Music, followed by a Master’s degree in Music Therapy from New York University, she became a professor of Music Therapy and Voice at the New School (2001-2006) and worked extensively in the clinical field.

She has performed in Taiwan, Mexico, Israel, Brazil, and throughout Europe and the United States. Her live performances have been broadcast on Spanish National Radio 4, German Public Radio, Italian National Radio 3, Radio Freistadt (Austria), DRS (Swiss-German national radio), Wnyc and National Public Radio in the Us.

During his illustrious career, Velez has single-handedly popularized this ancient drum for the modern world.

Velez is the first percussionist to gain international recognition as a successful solo artist using frame drums. In 1989 Velez’s undeniable mastery caught the attention of twentieth century composer John Cage, who Composed a piece especially for him, titled 'Improvisation for One-Sided Drum with or without Jingles.' His most recent work, presented as the Glen Velez Ta Ka Di Mi Project, features the virtuosic rhythm vocalist Loire (Lori Cotler) and other guest artists. Velez is also a core member of Trio Globo featuring Eugene Friesen and Howard Levy. Velez is an adjunct professor at the Mannes School of Music in New York City and conducts regular master classes at The Juilliard School and Tanglewood Summer Music Program.
