40-208 AD LIBITUM (création)
In this creation specially designed for the St. Elizabeth Church, percussionist and trained architect Jason Van Gulick extends the utilization of the metronome beyond its usual use as an essential time-keeping tool for musicians.
His installation in acoustic columns changes the perspective of the place. Metronomes chant their own temporality, acting on the different acoustics of the building’s architecture.

Acoustic percussion workshop
‼️ This workshop is postponed
Jason Van Gulick, percussionist and sound artist, working for several years on the resonance of the instrument and the propagation of sound in space.
How do these phenomena function? How to see and understand them ? Moreover, how to have fun and make music together ?
Around several bass drums and percussion, this workshop can bring and play with resonance, while observing the physical effects of vibration.
Jason Van Gulick
Since he began to play drums in 1996, Jason Van Gulick has built a diverse musical background. Coming from rock, hardcore, and post-metal scenes, he felt at ease in improvisation and experimentation.
Since 2011, he has been working in the development of several drum solos, following paths traced by Fritz Hauser, Ninh Lê Quhan or Chris Corsano.
Through his projects, he claims his place as a full percussionist and a full musician. The exploration of space by the diffusion of sound and staging the musician over the public, have become recurring themes in his projects. His architectural studies and training techniques nourish and develop his artistic work.
