Re: Do drummers have the ability to transcend time and space?
Loving this thread :)
As we improve we seem to slice time more finely (subjectively) - we can make sense of more things within a smaller time period. The finer the slices, the more in the zone you are. That's why we have to leave performance to our unconscious mind - our conscious mind isn't fast enough.
And talking of speed, that light speed graph really makes things clear. So, if the average stroke is 10cm, then by my rough calcsmoving at the speed of light would work out to be around 179,875,474,800 bpm.
