Following classical percussion training at the Conservatoire de musique de Hull, Frédéric Gauld began exploring rhythm from a more creative angle. He received several honours for his participation in performances at Cégep, motivating him to form an innovative percussion trio; the group toured Europe and North America (2000 Universal Exhibition in Hanover, Germany, Aurillac Festival in France, Just for Laughs Festival, Québec Summer Festival, etc.). The artist has also given solo percussion performances on a regular basis in Eastern Canada, mainly in the Maritimes, Québec and Ontario. Frédéric Gauld has acquired extensive experience in drum making and founded his own company, Pec Percussion, which today is a supplier of Steve’s Music store and the Cirque du Soleil, among others.
The objective of the workshop is to have students take part in a rhythmic creation experience. The session begins with the presentation of an excerpt from a colourful and energetic show to plunge young people into the universe of rhythm. The artist’s role is to supervise and stimulate the creativity of young people, while introducing various elements intended to feed their intellectual curiosity. Lasting approximately 75 minutes, the workshop culminates in the creation and recording of a short rhythmic piece.
