URC PERCUSSION PROJECT

Justine Bristow - Flute, Stick Drums, Gankogui & Gong 
Nick Townsend - Conga

These demo recordings are samples taken from improvised sessions on drum and guideline instruments. Improvised flute was then added as a second layer.  This is a good example of how one can simultaneously practice and compose with the principles of URC.  Working within the URC training principles; composition / improvisation, technique development and meditation become one wholistic experience.

FLUTE COMPOSITIONS

Flute compositions for solo flute, flute & piano, flute & guitar, composed by Justine Bristow.  The compositional method used was improvisation over a reoccurring bass line or harmonic progression.  Justine brings together her classical flute performance background with URC; combining rational knowledge with rhythmic entrainment.

THE ANARIS SYMPHONIC RHYTHM PROJECT

Composers Nick Townsend & Justine Bristow.

ANARIS is an acronym for "Awareness through Neuro Activation of  Rhythmic Intelligence in Simultaneity". The processes in URC were used as a primary focus for orchestral composition. Rather than starting a composition from a melodic and harmonic foundation, the music came together by using the principle's of polyrhythm, cross rhythm, simultaneity and synchronization to trigger an endless flow of musical creativity.
