Matt Chamberlain, visual delay

Discussion in 'rec.music.percussion' started by Ross Vandegrift, Aug 30, 2003.

  1. Caught the Lottapianos Tour in Philly the other night - Ben Folds and
    Tori Amos. Man, the keys were smoking!

    But so were the drums - first time I've ever seen Tori, and Chamberlain
    definitely rocked. This guy's nuts - he's played for everyone! I
    really liked the huge amount of tom work he does - fits Tori's piano
    playing wonderfully.

    I was far enough back from the stage that I was getting just a touch of
    sound latency. Very irritating. I could tell Chamberlain's hits
    weren't sounding right. Oh well, I'm nitpicking ::)

    Absolutely! The man's got game, that's for sure -- one of my favorite
    drummers. Two things:

    1) Check out Critters Buggin' -- I like the album Host, but they're all
    awesome. That band contains Chamberlain and at least one other member of
    New Bohemians (Edie Brickell's old band, which he was a part of). Lots of
    the tom work you talked about, PHAT grooves and tasty loops on that album.

    2) If you can, check out his performance with Tori Amos on Sessions at West
    54th. They rerun them all the time on the Trio network, and it really is
    one of the best shows on TV. His performance (and his drum sound!!!) are
    great.

    Is it available on tape? I can't even get cable out where I live, so if
    it's not on broadcast TV, I'll never catch it...

    please clarify:
    you mean you were hearing his drums acoustically and then through the
    PA?

    or the drums then the band?

    or what?

    or just you heard them after you saw them [drum hits i mean]?

    thanks

    I think what he's trying to say is, he SAW Matt Chamberlain but he HEARD
    Bernard Purdie.

    Well, I mean that I could feel a difference between the sound and the
    visual - he'd strike the drum, and there'd be a few millisecond delay
    before I heard the strike through the PA. I was way to far back to hear
    it acoustically.

    Now, he was dead on with everyone else - it's just that it's hard to
    notice a piano player or a bassist playing a note from where I was
    sitting.

    So it *sounded* awesome. It was just a bit visually odd.
