Drumming as Performance Art
In the Seventies and Eighties,
the Fine Art world was
into Performance and
Conceptual art. Many rituals and
events took place in art galleries.
What I perceived stuck with me.
Now, the performance art with
drumming groups has an element
that previous Fine Art performance
art could not allow it self to have;
spiritual or inspirational content.
I saw a hunger for deeper
content in the attendees at those
performance art events. But the
Fine Art world felt uncomfortable
with that. Now we drum.
