Check out drummer Mike Mangini.
This is really interesting because I didn’t know that the skin of the drum bounces from the drum stick’s hit. The suspended symbol became like liquid at many frames per second. The drummer, Mike Magini was looking at one of the drums before hitting the 2 drums before it. I liked te face he made in that slow motion part! 🙂
For me, this video was like a dream coming true because i love drumming and i also love time warp, i watch it regularly. I especially enjoyed hearing about the part when the drummer is 1 or 2 steps ahead of what he is hitting, so i think that i will incorporate that into my drumming technique as well. And when he hit the crash-suspended cymbal, i could tell that he was really hitting it hard and that the cymbal was designed to take the impact of a stick hitting at full force, and absorb it by sending the shock through to the back of the cymbal. And i also enjoyed the part where they slowed down his roll and the beats were EXACTLY on time and equally spaced. His method and technique was so precise!, these are the kind of drummers that i hope to be like one day and that i learn alot from.
This episode of time warp is very interesting because in this video they talked about the movement of the drummer and the proper technique of which muscles to use when playing. They also mentioned the risk of rock drummers playing which was something I was unaware of. I also did not know that there was a world record for beats per minute which was 1247 beats in one minute. The slow motion drum and cymbal hit was very cool and I didn’t that happens when you play. This video has taught me some new things and I was glad I watched it.
