The Music Gallery, David Blackwell Music School
Pymble, Australia
Simon Barker is a drummer (and obsessed barefoot runner) based in Sydney. He’s involved in numerous collaborative ensembles including Showa 44 (with guitarist Carl Dewhurst), Band of Five Names (with trumpeter Phil Slater, pianist Matt McMahon, and Carl Dewhurst), Chiri (with vocalist Bae il Dong and trumpeter Scott Tinkler), as well his numerous solo projects. In addition to performance activities, Simon has a PhD; he features in the award-winning film Intangible Asset #82, and currently lectures at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music/University of Sydney.

“Barker has few peers worldwide for flexibility, resourcefulness, imagination and a complete absence of rhythmic clichés.” John Shand (SMH 2010)

In this workshop, Simon will focus on connecting rhythmic forms to natural pendulums.
