Come join Colin Woodford at Machine Project for a performance of solo amplified cymbal.

Placing a microphone extremely close to a cymbal and amplifying it is a window into a rare and beautiful world — the sonic underbelly of a cold metal disc. The music is earthy and ancient, and explores the impact of a simple gesture — hitting a cymbal.

Using his voice, palms, fingers, drum sticks, mallets, and knitting needles, Colin Woodford builds a space for people to re-assess their relationship not only to the instrument, but to their sonic environment.

Colin Woodford is a composer, percussionist, instrument builder, and improviser from Los Angeles.
