Taikoz - Shifting Sand
Shifting Sand is a new work composed by TaikOz member Graham Hilgendorf. Inspired by the beach and ocean, Shifting Sand is a powerful evocation of the ocean’s many faces. TaikOz’s ethereal sounds, thunderous taiko drumming, dynamic movement and dance seeks to capture the beauty, majesty and force of the ocean. From the delicate play of light on the surface of the sea to the raging fury of winter storms. ‘Taiko’ is the Japanese word for ‘drum’ and TaikOz is Australia’s leading taiko drumming group. A TaikOz performance is more than just the beating of drums: it incorporates a complete world of drumming, song and dance that harks back to ancient Buddhist and Shinto rituals. It is a reflection of contemporary musical life, irrespective of nationality. A TaikOz performance is not just for the ears and eyes, but is felt throughout the entire body. It is a truly visceral experience. Contains high volume music.
