Ken Mazur fuses world-class virtuosity, state-of-the-art electronic percussion & DJ skills into Rhythm Architecture. Success comes from diligent research and testing of melodies from around the world people enjoy, world-class technical skills and hundreds of percussion instruments from which to choose.

The result is a signature act - tasteful, modern and unique - with the skill and visual excitement of live music.

Rhythm Architecture has music people of any age want to hear more of, seen at museum and hotel grand openings, juried fine art fairs, golf and country clubs, corporate and municipal events, fine dining restaurants, fundraisers, VIP areas and private events. This act travels. Performances occur all over Florida, Michigan and Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.

Most solo acts or duos use one instrument and a vocalist. Their repertoire is limited and after a while, they all sound the same. People grow tired of hearing songs repeated over and over when they sample the town at night. 

Rhythm Architecture brings a full musical listening menu: horns (trumpet, trombone, saxophone) strings (guitar, cello, violin, bass) winds (oboe, flute, clarinet), not to mention hundreds of percussion instruments (including piano).

Why not offer your patrons something to remember?

No one has my repertoire. Background dinner music comes from places traveled around the world, melodies people have never heard before, then want to know the names of. It is a unique sample of music from Europe, Ibiza Island and Brazil that comes with upbeat tempos and a subtle jazz influence. Instead of hearing songs repeated over and over, they hear music that becomes their new favorites. Many patrons call it "happy music."

Rhythm Architecture adjusts to a changing audience switching from dinner music to pack the dance floor in seconds - especially useful at weddings or when the hotel/bar/poolside active evening crowd arrives

 

Rhythm Architecture is like having a world-class drumline rock the dance floor. Dancers move to the beat of the drums. Dance sets are manipulated for tempo and length to maintain energy. Retro-remixes combine Motown or Disco with current radio hits. Rhythm Architecture does not shy away from ballads. It believes in slow dancing, especially melodic charts from clubs on sun drenched Brazilian beaches.

The background music repertoire is perfect for listening by candlelight, fireside, waterfall, or barefoot under the stars.

More than one client has stated it sounds like "happy music." 

Warm thoughtful contemporary Ibiza Island motifs from the Spanish Mediterranean mix with breezy NuJazz ballads from Brazil's windswept coastal beaches to create soft waves of sound, syncopated  by R&B grooves dusted with a touch of soul slow dancers sucumb to. People love these sets.

Unique Presentation  

Pleasant Repertoire  

Sophisticated Ambience

People dance to the beat of the drums. 

Rhythm Architecture is like having a large drumline at your event. My 17 years drum corps marching experience adds electricity to any wedding, nightclub or dance club using drumline arranging techniques and advanced technical skill to create unique textures and accent patterns. Tenor drums are used to create interesting counter melodies or support existing phrasing.

The audience sees notes happen LIVE! Competition speed and drumline syncopations always impress. Nothing captures attention like a drum solo! The Rhythm Architect invented choreographed competition solos, precursor to the hit movie - DRUMLINE!

Nightclubs throb to the pulse of EDM, House,Techno and Trance, then wind through all the Motown, 70s 80s and 90s favorites including the modern Latin genre.

Rhythm Architecture is unique and versatile.  

Municipal festivals request upbeat and forceful music for their stages, having strong accents and counter-rhythms.

Big Band charts and the dominant trumpets of Latin Jazz need strong percussion and rhythms that rock the house. Add Tropical Salsa, Merengue and Bachata to the mix and stir with easy listening, radio Top40, alternative and Urban Pop to create sets unique to your event.  

Rhythm Architecture has a more diverse repertoire than acts using one instrument and a vocalist because it has a full ensemble sound using trumpet, trombone, saxophone, flute, oboe, violin, cello - any number of vocal combinations - and hundreds of specially chosen percussion voices. 

The Rhythm Architect invented modern Olympic training techniques and choreographed competition drum soloing, precursor to the hit movie - DRUMLINE!

The speeds and visuals in this video are those used in world class solo compeiton drumming.

 

Dancers are mesmerized because they see unusual speed and power - not simple 8th notes - and all the exciting accent patterns and textures the competition drumline genre creates.  

Solo are used to compliment to the music, a rare skill that makes an event special and memorable.

Rhythm Architecture sometimes teams with musicians and other DJ's.

The act can perform dinner music, then join a small combo or band.

Musicians will improvise knowing when to stay in the background and when to solo to keep dancers moving to the beat. 

 

Since musicians usually work from tapes or CDs to learn new charts, It helps if everyone knows a wide selection of music genre.

Weddings, Nightclubs and Municipal Festivals looking for a unique and original performance have used this solution.
