Drum Excursion Vol. 1 is a truly experimental Drum Kit. The idea was to record our acoustic drum kit (TAMA SLS Custom / Meinl Byzance) at different locations so that the acoustic conditions of the respective area adds a unique character to our recordings. The recordings took place at two different locations: A forest clearing and under a highway bridge. The experiment was to find out how the drums would sound like in different environments. We recorded the results in picture and sound in order to evaluate, edit and refine them later in the studio. The outcome is an inspiring organic sounding Drum Kit!
Drum Excursion Overview:
Organic sounding drum loops (Forest & Bridge)
Modern trap loops made with organic sounds
Innovative percussion and FX
Hard hitting one shots
24 Bit / 44.1 kHz WAV format (compatible with all DAW's e.g. Pro Tools, Ableton, Cubase, Reason, MASCHINE, Logic, FL Studio...)
The Idea behind Drum Excursion was to capture the special sound aesthetics of certain locations. We initially decided on two locations: on the one hand, the forest with its comparatively low-reflection but still very striking sound and on the other hand under a highway bridge with its very strong reflections. Those two locations were perfect to record a bunch of loops and one shots with a very special texture and feeling to them.
