gut grabbing visceral art-making
Candise has been rocking out on her new synth pedal and it is inspiring me to explore new sounds on my acoustic drum kit. Andrew Diamond (aka Duracell) is featured in this video embodying exactly how i feel when i am behind my kit. If you’ve seen play/start live, you’ve seen my basest instincts. For me, this is what it means to make art.
For a long time I steered away from electronic drum elements because I didn’t feel a creative connection to them but Duracell has re-inspired me. Can I incorporate drum triggers in play/start music and experience the same intensity? We will be spending more time in our practice space over the next two months to find out. By the way, give this video a chance; it gets really awesome about 30 seconds in!
