An old school house in Finniss,
rural South Australia,
played host to The Percussion House
for three jam packed days.
A truck load of beautiful instruments….
…..a continuum of found objects
…..and in the spirit of openness
.......and trust in intuition,
Three fortunate musicians stumbled across these elements in rhythm
In synchronicity unintended… the elements evolved
earth was laid down… wind creaked at the door…
fire under the kettle… the water started to move
our spirits elevated… metal meditated…
In synchronicity unintended,
homage was paid to the ancient connection
humans have with the energy of music.
