VONGOLE FILMS TO RELEASE LIFE ON DRUMS DVD OCTOBER 8
An evocative, educational exploration of the creative inspiration at work behind the trap set, directed by and featuring Billy Martin of [Medeski Martin and Wood]
Life on Drums, to be released on DVD via Vongole Films on October 8, is a refreshing reinvention of the instructional video, blending a cinematic visual sense with an approach to instruction that prizes the intuitive and the creative over the merely technical. Conceived by, directed by, and featuring the endlessly musical drummer, percussionist and teacher Billy Martin (Medeski Martin and Wood), Life on Drums is a riveting extension of his open-ended approach to percussion, improvisation, and music.
