Boom! International Festival of Percussion presents

Drumscapes

Concert

3 Oct 2022

Master drummer, David Jones, presents a solo concert experience.

Using his extensive drum kit, percussion, and electronic wavedrum, plus effects, David promises a mesmerising and animated journey through rhythms inspired by his everyday life.

Drumscapes is a celebration of music David hears in the environment – in the hum of machines that define his city life, and in the clink of a teaspoon stirring his morning coffee.

From the sounds of a fluttering butterfly to a roaring locomotive, David’s landscape of rhythms and effects will have you entranced one minute, body-drumming the next.

If you have access needs, please call the Box Office on 02 9061 5344 to book tickets.

Master drummer, David Jones, is often described as one of the most innovative and musical drummers in the world, a true virtuoso.

He is a frequent guest artist and soloist with Australian and New Zealand Symphony Orchestras, and in Hong Kong and Japan. Toshi Watanabe composed a drumkit concerto for David, which premiered in Japan in 2006. A second concerto, by Joe Chindamo, was commissioned by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, with a world premiere in March 2018 conducted by Sir Andrew Davis.

Professional since 1975, David performs and records with great Australian and international artists across all genres. He has won numerous awards including the Melbourne Prize for Music (2010). Globally, David has presented his original solo drumkit concerts since 2005.
