Renowned musicians Adrian Belew, Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto have announced additional details about The Crimson ProjeKct Presents…Three Of A Perfect Pair Music Camp, held August 20-24 at Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY. The week-long excursion will be highlighted by a rare live performance by The Crimson ProjeKct at the legendary Bearsville Theater in nearby Woodstock, NY on August 23.
Bassist Tony Levin elaborates: “At the camp, Adrian, Pat and I will be giving classes. Also expected to be in attendance on certain days areMarkus Reuter, Julie Slick and Tobias Ralph–the other members of Adrian Belew Power Trio and Stick Men–which all together add up to The Crimson ProjeKct, who will have just spent the summer touring with Dream Theater. Count on a lot of insight into Crimson music, both at open rehearsals and at the Bearsville Theater concert where all campers will be guests for the soundcheck and show.”
Together as the musical backbone of progressive rock linchpins King Crimson – and separately through countless other bands, projects and collaborations – Belew, Levin and Mastelotto have helped forge the history of modern rock music over careers spanning five decades.
At the Three Of A Perfect Pair Music Camp, Adrian, Tony and Pat will share musical insight, meals, tales from the road, and even the stage during after-hours jam sessions with campers. Whether campers play guitar, drums, bass – or no instrument at all – Three Of A Perfect Pair offers a rare opportunity to learn, to play, to make new friends, and to get up close and personal with this trio of renowned musicians.
Class topics at the camp will include: musicality, bass sounds, guitar and vocal technique, tips for recording vs. playing live, 21st century drumming (man/machine), sounds (rhythm, beats, noises), taking the show on the road (how to consolidate ideas), and more. The week will culminate with a large group jam session that will be recorded for campers to take home with them on a custom camp USB stick.
