Except for the music program, Seasplash Festival visitors will also enjoy the various accompanying content such as workshops.
Intuitive Drumming/Percussion Workshop
For the first time ever, our guests will be able to participate in a spontaneous drumming/percussion circle and learn about the skills required to freely, but responsibly, create music in a group. All the other guests who just want to dance to the sounds of drumming are more than welcome to join us. The workshop leader is Nino Orepić, a formally and non-formally trained musician who holds a Master’s degree in Biology. Nino has been coming to our festival since the early beginnings, and his last performance on the festival was in 2011, Neutralna Mistika. The core of his musical vision is in the free, but responsible musical expression, in the search for groove and its creation; in music which can be individual playing, going of the leash, getting crazy with sounds, exploring your own music needs, appetites, cravings, passions in one moment, and then getting completely firm, poised, clear support to someone else in the circle. In that way, the music in classes and percussion circles which Nino organizes happens and exists in a wide range from completely repetitive, shaman-like drumming, to experimental, chaotic music without rhythm and tempo. The workshop is open to everybody, no matter the musical (in)experience. Nothing will be taught classically. Some instruments will be provided, but you are more than welcome to bring your own. The workshop will be held from 19 to 22 July from 19 to 21 in front of the Punta Christo Fortress. You can register on-site.
