"The essential source of drumming can be found through the act of expression and/or communication. It inevitably touches the exquisite relationship between sound and its meaning. Without an intended meaning, drumming can be interpreted and experienced as the mere mumbling of random rhythms."
A WORLD OF RHYTHMIC POSSIBILITIES
Drumming is as universal and personal as life itself.
This book comes from a great sense of passion and love – a “love story” dedicated to my intimate and lifelong relationship with drumming.
After years of gathering many questions about rhythms and drumming, this book became something that I needed to do. Writing it has not only helped answer most of these questions, but also allowed me to go deeper into understanding the perception and awareness behind rhythm, including its emotional and spiritual aspects.
Uncovering the divine qualities that allow us to
travel through time and space, using rhythms
to create music, manipulating sounds.
Playing what we want to hear is much more than hitting the Drums in an arbitrary way. Hence, it is fundamentally related to a deep understanding of sound that is gained through a meticulous process of listening for the sounds both inside and outside of ourselves.
