The "John Ferrara + Seth Moutal Duo" will be hosting a master class at Rock University in Charlotte, NC. The class will discuss various aspects of what the duo does from how they developed their sound, methods on composing and improvising, and how they pull it all off live. They will also discuss practice habits, playing in odd time signatures, using unorthodox techniques and more. There will also be a Q + A segment at the end. Spread the word, hope to see you there!!

About:
John Ferrara (bassist for Consider the Source) had been working on solo material for quite some time but in doing so realized that some of the songs needed something more. His first thought was to contact an amazingly talented drummer and multi percussionist, Seth Moutal, to bounce ideas off of.

The music is a fusion of rock, jazz, world music, progressive rock, classical and minimalism. Between the two of them they manage a massive sound that ranges from slow, spacey songs to solo pieces to full force prog and jazz fusion epics. John plays bass and loops tapping and slap lines while playing lead over them often while playing homemade midi foot pedals with his feet. Seth plays drum set, tabla and hand drums and also mixes all three of them together at times.
