Rhythm Monks

A Techno Percussion Shaman Spectacle

…In the Trance and Electro scene, the Monks see a connection between the archaic rituals of Rhythm and Dance. Crossing to the spiritual side of the Drum is the greatest adventure for the Rhythm Monks. The worldwide connection between Rhythm and Ritual exists as powerfully in the present as it has in the past. The Rhythm Monks study the Power of Rhythm, which has a great influence on the spirit and body of the human being. The goal of the Rhythm Monks is to discover the True Self and develop the hidden capacities within this medium. On the path towards substantial evolution, the playing of mystical rhythms is one of the basic methods to develop your substance within. Explore what the Drum does do to you, explore the Rhythm…

The Rhythm Monks Project was an on and off musical experiment based in Berlin. We used a converted loft in Tempelhof as a stage for developing music, visual and stage experiments. Percussion driven real-time generated visuals, body tracking, lights, lasers and dance.

Performances were done at our loft and at a few select locations and festivals including Tao Las Vegas, Lollapalooza Brazil, LA stock exchange, The Knitting Factory and Festsaal Kruzberg.
