Some mp3 clips I would like you to check out

Discussion in 'rec.music.percussion' started by Linda Dachtyl, Aug 26, 2003.

  1. I have read the newsgroup off and on for awhile and would like to post the
    website for the power trio I play drums for.

    http://www.waltjames.com

    Kind of a progressive/psychedelic feel with mixed meters with a nod to
    Jimi/Sabbath/Rush/Zep

    Hope you enjoy them. We are looking forward to our CD release party 9/20.
    Info on the website.

    Thanks,

    Linda

    Nice meter mixing. Good job on that.

    Get them hippies to take some more pics of you <g>!

    Nice stuff - heavy, good laid back feel in your playing and a nice
    aggressive drum sound, too. Sounds like you're smackin' em. I hear that
    Sabbath influence all over the place - and I mean that in a good way.

    Not to mention... a girl kickin' ass on drums is always cool. (Come to
    think of it, girls kickin' ass on anything is cool. So call me a guy.)

  6. Linda,

    A pleasure to hear your work. On first listening I am knocked out.
    Your drums sound great. The music is powerful and at the same time
    measured and controled. I'm going to give it all another listening. I
    can't wait to hear the CD. I have an early gig on Sept 20 in
    Huntington ,WV. I think I can be in Columbus in time for the CD
    release.


    When you are rehearsing the music, How do you create your part?
    Does the composer dictate the drum part?
    Are you completely free to create a part as you wish?
    Does the part gradually emerge from improvisation or colaboration?
    Please tell us about your creative process.

  8. Thanks!

    I kind of hide behind the China....no reason, easy to reach...but just makes
    for bad lighting. However there were a couple of "LesDeMerle" faces I made
    and had the webmaster take those off the site;-)

    They are new DWs. I am very impressed with how little I have to do these
    drums to get them sounding right.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks. We recently played the Monkey Bar in Huntington. Our bass player,
    John Salvatore is from there originally.

    Walt is very sharp in writing drum parts on the computer for demo purposes
    and brings complete songs to the room. Every once in awhile, there are
    "octopus" parts that have to be modified, but not too often. I also have
    freedom with the parts, but it is nice to not just be handed a tape with a
    guitar/vocal and work with someone who really can't communicate what they
    want.

    This particular project is something Walt has been working on for awhile
    composing and getting things the way he likes. I would compare him to Trevor
    Rabin in knowing what he wants played. However, he is flexible if something
    doesn't just groove right and we try a few things until they do.

    We did all my drum tracks in one day. Went in well rehearsed so there wasn't
    too much pressure.

    I will take a listen to your clips. Sounds like you have your hands in allot
    of things musically, like me. I also play keys and have a Hammond B3 jazz
    quartet. I would love to revive an old prog project where I played a stack
    key, too. Music is an obsession;-)

    I really like your clips. We should maybe do a bill together sometime.
    Huntington splits the difference, I think as far as a central location.
    I find we play too many bills with punk bands in town and would like to do
    some other things with likeminded musicians.

    LOL! I was just going to say sounds like Ozzy should be singing some of that
    stuff.
    Not bad at all, even though im not a huge fan of the music there is some real
    talent there.
