ZILDJIAN ANNOUNCES ASIA CLINIC TOUR WITH GAVIN HARRISON FOR FALL 2012

The Avedis Zildjian Company announced today that British drummer Gavin Harrison will embark on an extensive Asia clinic tour in October 2012.  Tour dates will include stops in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, China, and the Philippines. 

Gavin has played with a number of the world’s greatest artists and bands, including Incognito, Level 42, and punk icon Iggy Pop.  Best known for his work with the progressive rock band Porcupine Tree, which he joined in 2002, Gavin also occupies the drum seat with the legendary band King Crimson.

A talented author, Gavin has released two instructional drum books entitled Rhythmic Illusions and Rhythmic Perspectives and produced his own instructional DVDs, Rhythmic Visions and Rhythmic Horizons.  In 2012, Rhythmic Designs was released, a book of transcriptions by Terry Branam and a three-hour DVD containing explanations and demonstrations by Gavin.  Rhythmic Designs won 'Best in Show' at the summer NAMM show. 

In addition to performances on his acoustic kit and Zildjian cymbals, Gavin will incorporate a demonstration on the Gen16 award winning AE Cymbal System as part of his clinic.  The Gen16 Acoustic Electric Cymbal System represents a major departure from current electronic cymbal technology that employs MIDI trigger pads and sampled sounds.  Zildjian‘s revolutionary new cymbal system includes low-volume, acoustic metal cymbals; a pickup that utilizes a patent-pending, dual-head mini microphone design; and a Digital Cymbal Processor designed to produce customizable cymbal sounds. Furthermore, the Gen16 AE Cymbal System retains many of the desirable qualities of acoustic cymbals in terms of its overall feel and responsiveness, providing musicians with an authentic drumming experience.

According to Bob Wiczling, Zildjian‘s International Marketing Manager, “We are extremely proud to have Gavin represent Zildjian on the upcoming Asia tour.  He continues to be one of the world’s most sought after clinicians, having conducted clinics extensively across Europe and the USA.  Now Asian drummers will have a unique opportunity to see Gavin in person and benefit from his clinics.”
