My wife said this sounded like a level of a video game where you are racing down endless pews of a church. You know, a pew level. Another in the slow motion bach series, this time paired with the tart frenetic flavor of 90s breaks…

This is a true story. Im pretty sure this guy still has a taxi job on the night shift in Denver. Too long since I’ve posted a song. Most importantly, I got Norm to dust off the skins and record some percussion for me. Good to hear Norm and…

Ok, so I'm just a percussionist, and if your only tool is a hammer, the entire world looks like a nail. I get it. And I also get that our songs are our children, so we should be very careful about whom we let them play with. When I first heard…

*Pilón* reveals a Cuban pattern, traditionally played on Timbales, but in this case on Jr. Congas & Congas (with gated reverberation and flanger effect). The rhythm of Pilón is based on the motions of pounding sugar cane. A new son reveals…

All of my percussion is acoustic & live - no synths or samples, unless I’m goofing around with Daisy on Reefwalker’s V-drums. Recorded on a TASCAM DPO2CF digital multi track recorder through Shure microphones: SM57(dynamic), Beta 98DS (condenser), Beta 91 Bass Mic (condenser). Any processing is via a Lexicon MX200 stereo Reverb/Effects Processor.

from Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, US
