Tuesday September 23rd
7pm – 9pm Dubspot NY Room 6

Join us for the Dubspot NY Maschine User Group this month with a special presentation on finger drumming and performance. This workshop features Tim Kroker, a performer who is currently touring with the acclaimed industrial band, Front 242. Tim will explain some drum techniques for finger drumming in live performance and studio environments. Dubspot instructor and Maschine guru Shareef Islam hosts this free workshop at Dubspot NY.

“In this workshop I will explain some of the finger drumming and performing techniques I have developed over the last few years. Having a background in drumming, I transformed exercises from the realm of drumming into the pad controller/finger drumming domain. I am specifically interested in using finger drumming as a creative tool for live performances (solo or with DJs and musicians) or in a studio environment. In addition, Maschine provides a great effect section that makes the controller suitable for use in a way that is similar to DJing and mixing.” – Tim Kroker

This event is FREE and open to the public. Space is limited so please arrive early and RSVP at our Facebook event page.
