DORIT INSTRUMENTS

 


What is a DORIT?

 

A DORIT is a wooden bass box drum with melodic metal strips attached. The combination of the Cajon and the Marimbula.

a Cajon is a wooden box drum with sound holes cut out of the center of it to allow the sound to resonate. Some Cajons have a metal wire inside of them, that creates a sharp snap, similar to  snare drum.

A Marimbula is another instrument containing metal keys.  These metal strips are tuned to different pitches, and are plucked to produce music. The marímbula is apart of the lamellophone family of musical instruments. The marimbula provides  the bass, rhythm and harmony, and it can produce simple melodies as well.

what makes a DORIT so unique is that is combines these two tribal instruments into one rhythmic, melodic synthesis. A DORIT reinvents percussion instruments, touching back and honoring it’s rhythmic roots, and reaching forward toward an evolved world of music.

This bass box is a great new addition to any musician, instrument collector, or art enthusiast.

Hand-crafted in Portland, ME


 

WHY MAKE INSTRUMENTS??

 

The most important part of building these instruments is the music. We believe that playing an instrument has a tremendous healing effect on people, and can inspire health and well being. The act of playing is essential and instruments motivate us to embrace our inner rhythm and deepen our connections with people.

Each drum is built with a playful intention of spreading joy and creativity with all who encounter it. We are grateful to have the opportunity to share such an inspiration with our local community and look forward to connecting with the world of musicians everywhere!

Instruments have been used as communication, meditation, stress relief, and playful exercise.

This is a multi-faceted instrument that can be played intricately, and simply.

IT’S A PROCESS (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

MYLES BULLEN- IT’S A PROCESS (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Written by Myles Bullen/ Produced by Laughing Animal/Video by Alexa Ward

 

 Lyrics:

It’s A Process

Fixed attention to turn illness into illumination
No longer racing to my grave, facing death with patients
How can you be defined?
How do you move through life?
How do you see through your sight?
How do you think through your mind?

Make moves & move with the tides
Speak truth & lose all the lies
Put your guard down
You will then rise

Find your heart pound, don’t let your heart down
Let your chest open up, speak up, be here, be now, be loud
Tell the universe your intelligence is important to the whole inner world
Give love, it’s an intercourse
Loving yourself from the inner first

Now round together like a flock of birds
Sounding better than you’ve ever heard

Whatever it is that your searching for
Keep circling the surface find some people that you trust
Show affection, support what you need to see in this world
And work hard at being good at what you love

Coming to grips with letting go
Of a past of bad habits attached
Judgments are fractured
A manic about to spaz

I’m sick of constipated humans
People who don’t give a shit
I say accept all, even me for being a hypocrite
I’m working at none judgment, minding my own business
But still it’s a process, and you all are the witness

Psychedelic kaleidoscopic
Panoramic oval optics
Seeing all that all can offer
Being air and bearing water
Treading onwards

Visions opened altered options
Loneliness will leave the body
Mixed emotions heal the toxic
Alchemy is always awkward

Reach a point and the get across it

Most obligations are overrated
Most temptations are worth attempting
Too few cities grow food, they don’t grow food
Too few schools teach love, the don’t teach love

All the world sees the sun and the moon
But too few know the meaning of most that happens in every moment

It’s a process, still it’s a process
Still I’m unconscious
Still have empty pockets
Stillness is all I wanted and I got it
