Orientation utilizes taiko's fundamentals (multiple drum tones, interlocking rhythms, and "kuchishoga" vocalizations) to create a compelling piece of percussive music. Designed to "orient" the audience to percussion and the techniques taiko uses to generate movement and direction in the music, this course provides the experience of playing interlocking rhythms in a real taiko ensemble.
