Percussive Notes Editor, World Percussion:
Charge: The World Percussion Committee makes recommendations for the various contemporary and traditional world percussion events at PASIC. Committee members also contribute to Percussive Notes, Rhythm! Scene, and Rhythm! Discovery Center to help expand cultural diversity, musicianship, and understanding of world percussion.
Application: The applicant will be contacted by the Chair for a phone interview during the official application review period, which is June 1st to June 30th. During this interview, the applicant should be prepared to discuss current activities as a performer and/or educator, non-Western areas of expertise (aka Ewe drumming, Javanese gamelan, etc.), as well as ways s/he would be interested in contributing to the Committee's activity. Based on the documentation submitted, the interview, and the need of the Committee to represent as wide a swath of world music specialties as possible, the chair will make a determination as to the applicant's Committee membership and will notify all applicants of the final selection results by July 15th. Current Committee members may be contacted by the Chair as needed for input on an individual's membership application.
Guidelines for Membership: Each committee member should attend at least two (2) out of the three (3) PASICs within each membership term. Members will be expected to serve on either a PASIC review committee and/or World Percussion Ensemble Competition judging panel when requested by the Chair, which will typically entail one to two services per three-year term. Exceptions will be taken on a case-by-case basis, but failure to serve on at least one review committee or judging panel per three-year term will result in removal from the Committee. In addition, members are to maintain a reasonable line of communication with regards to Committee business.
