The workshop is focused on the dynamical possibilities of the instrument, working both with the wheel and left hand control as well as with the trumpet and different rithms combinations.

The usage of upper beatings as percussive elements and a dialog between the two hands. Regular and irregular timings and the inclusion of drones into the music not only as a stady note.
