Kumquat was invited to give a workshop in the CEMM music school in Italy, near Milano. We spent a day with about 15 students, playing some of our songs together. It was an opportunity for us to try and reconstruct the composition ideas underlying our musical material. Some are based on rather complex rythmic patterns, which we have internalized over the years of playing, we don’t really have to think about it anymore. We happily realized that some quite rigorous ideas have drifted a little with practice, i.e. the actual music as we have embodied it doesn’t always stick to the original conceptual idea. At the end of the day, the students mastered some of our riffs, it’s a nice experience to hear the music from the audience perspective.
