Behind The Beat: The Future of Drums, Drummers & Music Technology
November 11, 2020
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “In its hundred-year history, the drumset has been adorned by temple blocks, timpani, and bass drumheads with nature scenes…introduction of the hi-hat, Rototoms, Octobans… bass drums with no front heads at all…entire drumsets would spin in the air, be aided by powerful electronics, and explode in size with additional bass drums, toms, and snare drums and enough cymbals to equip a large marching band.” “So what of drumming’s future?…How will such buzz phrases as “Internet of Things” and “Industry 4.0” change the way drummers interact with their environment? A basic understanding of electronic instruments, which is already a required part of a working drummer’s vocabulary, will surely become more ingrained in our skill sets. Or will some as yet unknown drummer or technology alter the game entirely?” moderndrummer.com We’ll ask musicians Kevin McCollom, Brian McCollom and Lou Wysocki for their take on Behind The Beat: The Future of Drums, Drummers and Music Technology.
