Saturday April 26, 2014 -- The Crocodile, Seattle
I'll be one of 25 participants at this crazy event.

Seattle Rock Lottery

 

The Crocodile (2118 2nd Ave, Belltown)
Saturday, April 26, 2014
Benefit for the WA Music Educators Association 
Doors open at 9pm, show starts promptly at 10pm
$10 advance / $15 at door (21+) 

The Rock Lottery is simple, but effective. Twenty-five hand-picked musicians meet at 10:00AM at the evening's performance venue. These volunteers are organized into five bands through a lottery-based chance selection. The five groups are released to practice at different locations. The musicians have twelve hours to agree upon a band name and create three to five songs (with a one cover song limit). The bands then return to the venue and perform what they have created in front of a waiting audience. 

The twenty-five musicians included in this experiment are carefully selected in an attempt to represent a wide variety of musical styles. This event will bring together many facets of the music community that may seem incompatible, as well as musicians whose interests may conflict. The challenge for these participants is to go beyond their personal and musical differences and work together to create a unified group project that still contains the personal styles of each of its members. 

The Rock Lottery is a benefit, with all proceeds going to the Washington Music Educators Association. The musicians chosen to participate are unpaid volunteers. The participants are chosen by the Rock Lottery participant committee with suggestions from former Rock Lottery participants and other members of Seattle's music community.

The timeless music of PETER GABRIEL has found new life through The Security Project. Featuring former members of Peter Gabriel Band, King Crimson, a former Marillion member’s tour, Carpet Crawlers UK, The Lou Reed Band, The Security Project not only recreates these masterpieces live, but gives them new musical wings for the 21st century. The reviews have been glowing: “Scary Good Show!” raves Progression Magazine after their premiere in New York City. Noted musicians also have given a thumbs up, including Tony Levin, Larry Fast (both from Gabriel’s band) Steve Hackett (Genesis), Jon Anderson (Yes), Gabriel Mixer/Producer Tom Lord-Alge, Gabriel Analyst Lilywhite Leigh, to name a few, have all taken note.

Founding member
Jerry Marotta says: “Peter was always great at setting the table for us as musicians; he always got us started with great ideas… As we were creating SECURITY we had no idea we were making something so unique… I’m proud that with Security Project we’re able to deliver the deepest of those songs, and do it with real conviction -- playing them live.”


What’s The Buzz?
"TSP are a mind-blowing amalgam of disparate musical brilliance!"-Gabriel Researcher/Lilywhite Leigh
"Sound as good -- at times maybe better -- than even Gabriel can nowadays" -Time Out, NYC
"King Crimson's Trey Gunn brilliantly injects a wicked warp to Gabriel's melodic weave."–G.A.S. Online
"A Scary Good Show!"  -Progression Magazine
"Great to see some of the original members doing it the right way." -Steve Hackett (Genesis)

The Security Project ~ Plays Live:
Jerry Marotta: Drums & Percussion, Backing Vocal
Trey Gunn: Warr Guitar, Backing Vocal

 Trey Gunn and Markus Reuter
 Music and The Tapping Technique
 For all tapping instruments and all levels

Innsbruck, Austria
June 18 - 23, 2012


The main question we all are asking is how to turn notes, rhythms, technique, and fret board knowledge into music? And how to do it  immediately. Practicing scales and fret board calisthenics develop one's capacity to play scales and calisthenics - not necessarily to play music. Our belief is that playing music and developing one's own musical vision should be the beginning. Then technique should be the work that follows. This way you are truly working on the things that support where you want to go as a player.

For this course we will be presenting a variety of work in tapping mechanics, ear training, fret board knowledge, improvisation, alternate approaches of the touch techniques, and other challenges that will help to focus your own musical vision. The players who come will be exposed to a plethora of ideas and practices to try out and see what truly fits their musical life.

June 19, 2010 --  Here/Now Project -- Seattle, WA

I have been invited to participate in a very unusual performance next weekend here in Seattle.

There will be 8 musicians and 8 dancers. An audience member will come up and draw the name of two musicians and twodancers from a hat. The four will improvise for 8 minutes, then another grouping
of four will be picked for the ...next 8 minute segment. And so on, until
everyone has gone. The people involved have no idea whowill be there, and most likely I won't even know any of the participants.

This looks like a very well crafted event, as the time constraints insure that: One, nobody goes on too long and Two, 8minutes is just long enough that you can't expect to last it bybringing in any ideas. You must go to the well that is present, here in the event. I'm excited.

Trey discusses Quodia and multi-media creation/performance

Kirkland Arts Center
Saturday March 27, 2010,  2:00-4:00 pm

In this workshop, Trey Gunn will present portions of Quodia and discusses the original creative vision for the project, how it began and how it evolved, its current state and its future, and how it fits in with his body of work.  Quodia is a multi-media storytelling/ performance project established by Trey Gunn (of King Crimson) and Joe Mendelson (of Rise Robots Rise) in 2003. This project combines music, film, sound design, literature, and theater into an elegantly layered, immersive performance experience. Part movie, part theater, and part concert, Quodia tells archetypal fairytales, driven by high-tech digital tools – laptops, keyboard, electronic percussion, Warr guitar, video projectors, and a large screen. Quodia inspires a degree of audience participation through intentional use of narrative “holes”, where audience members are encouraged to use their own imagination.
