What's New? ... 30th April 2013 ....
You Tube Time!!
Not only does YouTube have a selection of well over 350+ clips of the 600+ Melbourne Musos Drum Show episodes, it has all the extra bits I can't fit onto the TV Show in full uncompressed stereo.
I've been spending quite a bit of time creating music using the triggers on the drumset to compose music based on the genres of music I have been presenting on Melbourne Musos;
Flamenco, African, Celtic and Metal so far.
I've started by playing drumset music based on the musical genres presented on the show, then, using the triggered sounds, arrange them for strings, woodwind, african percussion and the like, the result is a series of orchestral "suites" that can be heard on YouTube.
Go have a listen, hope you like it :)
New Book! Playing Drums for Little Ones!
I have a new drum book especially designed for little ones, beginning with clapping, beginning to draw notes, play beats, learn funny names like "paradiddle" and having lots of fun around the drums, including the introduction of the Metro-Gnome! Buy it here :)
Melbourne Musos Classics on YouTube!
Some fond memories of some great musicians I was lucky enough to film/interview/play with for Melbourne Musos between 1995 -1999 including
Terry Bozzio, Alan Zavod, Richard Piper, Trilok Gurtu and more to come :)
Percussion and Orchestral Works also on YouTube!
I've also been busy and posted more original works on YouTube. I've also blown the dust off of music I've composed and recorded over the last four decades, spiffed them up with a bit of remastering and combined them with some art and photography. I'd love you to go have a listen :) ...
