workshop : surprise : maker
June 03, 2012 14:00 - 17:00
part of project: Fake It Til You Make It

June's Fake It Till You Make It will be a Sunday afternoon session on 3 June.  Last time, we reclaimed power from seemingly dead batteries. What will happen this time?

All are welcome, and remember, it's always nice to register so Justin knows roughly how many people are coming.

About FITYMI
Fake It Till You Make It is a workshop/working group for those curious individuals looking to broaden their experience and skill-set. Each session of FITYMI will be on a different subject which could fall under areas of expertise such as construction, making, baking, electronics, mechanics, cooking, jewelry, physics, plants, and whatever else can be imagined. It is the purpose of the workshop to learn new things for the sake of learning and it is for this reason that participants will only discover the subject of each session upon arriving to the workshop. During each meeting there is a short talk about the subject and how to accomplish the objective of the FITYMI session followed by participants choosing how to proceed (experimenting with materials, accomplishing a project, discussion and/or playing) with food available at some point during the workshop.

To cover the expenses of materials and food for the workshop participants are asked to ‘pay what you can’.  We'll have food to share at the end while we reflect on what we made.

Running/organizing the workshop is Justin Tyler Tate who instructs other workshops such as 'Fast and Raw' - Intermediate sushi and 'Under Your Skin' (Tattooing Workshop). Tate has a Bachelors degree in Fine Art, a Doctorate in electronics and has an insatiable curiosity for new materials, techniques and ways of making.

Drum-poet Otzir Godot (FI, b. 1968) is classically trained drummer & percussionist specialised in improvising. He has been involved in solo projects and working with modern dance artists, video artists and in different rock -, free - and avant-garde music groups. Godot’s lyrical-orchestration drumwork is a far reaching project to the problematics of esthetics sublim: to the semantics and visions beyond the words. The aim of his solo projects is to expand the different expressing possibilities of drum set and percussion music. His instruments are not basic classical or latin / african percussion. More than that he uses varies of ethnic percussion possibilities, extended drum set and concert marimba. Godot’s two solo albums are Kas Kas (2009) and Drum poems (2011 Epatto Records). Nowadays besides of solo works Godot works in new MA-A TRIO with reed specialist, multi-instumentalist Jone Takamäki and violin shaman Tuomas Rounakari. MA-A TRIO’s modern primal music consist of improvisation in thematic structures. Archaic elements meet to modern and melt in essence of time, space and silence. The band is now processing their first album.
