That would be fantastic! I'm a student at BIMM: (Brighton Insitute of Modern Music) http://www.bimm.co.uk/brighton/ studying a Proffesional Diploma in Drums leading on to a BA Hons in Proffesional Musicianship.My question is: are you going to do some clinic tour around the europe next year, maybe in italy like 2007?
It's possible but I have no confirmed plans to at the moment - but I have some offers from Italy and I'm just waiting to find out my availability from the Porcupine Tree touring.
Yeah, that's the most elegant way to go! Cool you're doing it this way in the studio too!Gavin Harrison said:Black Dahlia is played with brushes - and about half way through I pick up a stick in my right hand and play a ride cymbal - but continue with the brush in my left hand.
does anyone know which cymbal Gavin uses in Normal at 5:05 till the end of the song, when he's doing the buzz rolls along with the toms.
That's my 20" K ride cymbal - it's not overdubbed and all the patterns are played incorporating that ride.
Yeah, I noticed, all of you must have wanted to hit someone really hard after that show, specially the people at the mixing table :-O .That show was a nightmare - and I wish it wasn't all over the internet. We had a lot of technical problems.
Thanks for your reply. So I'll challenge myself when I have enough practice time. As you mention, this is not stuff to play in band situations, and therefore doesn't belong to the first things I practice in my routine. Or mostly not... Since I study your stuff I often catch myself incorporating i.e. 5 note groupings in swing stuff or so though . On the other hand I've heard Bill Stewart do so as well.Hi Swiss Matthias,
First of all these are meant to be exercises not rhythms you're going to play necessarily in a band situation. The whole reason to switch to feeling it all from a 3's (or 5's or 7's) perspective is the mental exercise of playing the exactly same notes as in 16ths 4/4 - but changing the way you think and perceive it. It's good for your rhythmic brain to be challenged in this way.
Nice interview, but the article says that In Absentia was released in 2004. Actually it was released in 2002. Deadwing, the second PT-album that Gavin played in, was released in 2005.Just a little something that wanted to post here...
It's my interview of Gavin
