Event Percussion

2014-05-26 10:11:32

Since I have moved to Hong Kong I have provided backing tracks and percussionist for several global events. The first one was for the ITU (International Telecommication Union), the leading United Nations agency for information and communication technologies. I composed two compositions and provided 10 taiko drummers for the Welcome Reception of the Telecom World by the ITU. It's considered to be the leading United Nations agency for information and communication technologies. At this event the honorable guests included Chief Executive Officer of Hong Kong SAR Donald Tsang and The Premier of the People's Republic of China Wen Jiabao.

It took about a month of work to compose the music, submit the work to the event company, hire the drummers and work on choreography. In the end, it was a success and led to more events in the region. Like the Hang Seng Bank 75th Anniversary Celebration held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. For this event I composed a 15 minute composition and provided 16 taiko drummers for the 75th Anniversary Celebration. It was held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. The honorable guests included Chief Executive Officer of Hong Kong SAR Donald Tsang.

Another event performance that I composed was an opening taiko drum performance that required 8 drummers for the GSM Gala Party & Awards for the Mobile Asia Congress (the sister event to the Mobile World Congress, the largest, most significant and most successful global mobile event in the world). This event was hosted by Taiwanese actor, VJ and TV star, David Wu. The ceremony took place at the new Venetian Hotel in Macau. Artists Craig David and Taiwanese 'pop princess' Elva also performed during the show. It had a performance glitch for the professional drummers I hired. Rehearsal went perfect but when the performance happened the sound engineer forgot to turn on the monitor sends of the backing tracks. It can be really stressful to play big shows when things go wrong. I was so pleased with the drummers. They never missed a beat and was able to play in sync with the backing tracks. That's what a professional is in my book.

Percussion compositions at World Worm Studios:

I really enjoy providing energetic custom-made percussion music compositions, performance choreography and percussionists for events. It is very rewarding to me to be a part of a show from start to finish.
