Their music is a unique blend of polarities merging, like the sun and moon, cacophony and silence, they are both urban and wild in their essence.

3. ONDREJ SMEYKAL
Friday, 28th of March: 7pm – 10pm

A one-man Didgeridoo orchestra is perhaps the best way of describing the extraordinary music of phenomenal Didgeridoo player Ondrej Smeykal . His highly original style of play is the result of a life completely devoted to his instrument. For well over a decade and with ever increasing intensity, Ondrej has been developing and redefining his own unique approach to the Didgeridoo. His predominant use of unusually long Didges and “extensions” of up to 4 metres in length, enable him to play incredibly deep tones and to produce a much wider range of sounds and overtones than are possible on regular didgeridoos. Each composition, or song, as he refers to it, is very different in style, ranging from break-beat and organic Didgeridoo techno, to trance, ambient and anywhere in between.

4. JEREMY CLOAKE – Interactive Yidaki Seminar
Thursday 3rd of April: 7pm – 8pm

This is an informal seminar that is open to everyone who has an interest in the yidaki. Jeremy will share some of his knowledge and experiences from working in North East Arnhemland since 2000. Yidaki making and playing techniques will be discussed as well as various styles of yidaki. Towards the end of the seminar people will be given the opportunity to try an instrument with Jeremy’s guidance and there will be Q and A. People of all ages are welcome. The duration of the seminar is usually around an hour.

5. JEREMY CLOAKE YIDAKI WORKSHOPS
Saturday, 5th of April (Introductory Class) 11am – 4pm
Sunday, 6th of April (Advanced Class) 11am – 4pm

Introductory Class
If you have ever felt that the Yolngu playing techniques from North East Arnhem Land  are too difficult to manage, then this is the workshop for you! In this workshop Jeremy breaks these playing styles down into simple and easily learned individual sounds. During the workshop these sounds are practised and refined with many distinctions made regarding tongue position and movement, pressure control and use of the voice. Then they are put together into phrases that are repeated to become rhythms. Jeremy has been teaching this workshop internationally since 2001 and to this day still continues to refine his teaching methods and the content of his workshops. He is a professionally trained teacher and takes pride in delivering accurate and relevant information that is delivered in a straightforward way. This workshop is usually between 3 and 4 hours depending on the size of the group.

Advanced Class
This workshop continues on further with information from the introductory yidaki workshop, so it is necessary to have done it first. The phrases learnt in the introductory workshop are practised and refined then developed. Many different phrases are taught in a way which simplifies their complexity. Participants of this workshop will gain an excellent understanding on the principles of yidaki playing, together with composition skills and playing dexterity. Jeremy has been teaching this workshop internationally since 2001 and to this day still continues to refine his teaching methods and the content of his workshops. He is a professionally trained teacher and takes pride in delivering accurate and relevant information that is delivered in a straightforward way. This workshop is usually around 3 hours, depending on the size of the group.

Si’s Red Belly Black Fibreglass Didgeridoo….Now at Didgeridoo Breath

Posted: Friday, March 7, 2014 in New Products, News

SI Red Belly BlackSI Red Belly Black

All of us here at Didgeridoo Breath were didgn’ stoked when the box of Si‘s new fibreglass didgeridoos arrived at the shop last week. A few us were even lucky enough to test them out straight outta the packaging.

Here is our didge test drive of the new Si Red Belly Black fibreglass didgeridoo!

First impressions first, these didgeridoos are LOUD and very POWERFUL! It is easy to get carried away playing the Red Belly Black they have an awesome clear sound, with great back pressure, when playing you just want to play faster and faster and faster.

The Red Belly Black has a unique mouthpiece bowl, custom designed by Si himself. Although most of us in the shop have been playing for quite a while, we found it incredibly easy to achieve the toot on the Red Belly Black with the added bonus of the toot matching the tone of the didge (both in the musical key of F!). There were also mentions from some staff that they found the tone reflective of traditional yidaki style.

The Red Belly Black also incorporates a specialised rubber lining around the bell of the didge, which is a pretty cool addition for any busker or performer who likes to send out their didgeridoo musical medicine for all on a rough playing surface.

Come test them out in the shop for yourself if you are in the Fremantle area, or check out some of our sound samples on the product page to bear witness to the power of the Red Belly Black and have some FUN!
Si’s playing style has long been associated with speed and incredible versatility, now it’s your turn. Harness the ferocity of the red belly black and get didgn’ mate!

RED BELLIED BLACK DETAILS:
• Fibre-glass didgeridoo / plays smoothly with less effort
• Rubber Bell Protector
• 152cm / 5″2
• 2.2kg / 4.85lbs
• Key: F (1st Toot F)

Didgeridoo Breath visits the crew at SGIO

Posted: Thursday, September 13, 2012 in Didge Workshops

We here at Didgeridoo Breath think that Craig from SGIO is a pretty cool guy.

Craig is from SGIO insurance and he contacted us saying that he was conducting some team building exercises for the staff at SGIO, and was curious whether Didgeridoo Breath could help him. We thought that this was such a good idea for a workforce, learning didge and music skills with a bunch of people that you work with is pretty cool (we get to do it everyday 🙂 ) So We got Elliot, one of our experienced didge instructors, filled his awesome van full of didgeridoos and sent him over to meet the team at SGIO.

Overall there were 30 SGIO Staff members that attended the 1 hr didgeridoo lesson.

We had so much fun visiting the staff at SGIO, there was an abundance of laughter throughout the team- building exercises and we were soooo happy that by the end of the lesson, all of the staff members were all playing as a group, a lot we’re pulling off some really cool sounds, but most of all that everyone enjoyed it and got something out of it.

This is the feedback we received from Craig, who organised the lesson with us.
