Show Notes

Great conversation with contemporary drum kit specialist Ben Reimer! Really enjoyed this one.

We talked about expanding the horizons of the drum kit into forms of classical music, the melodic playing on his Katana of Choice LP, working with composers, using techniques from genres like metal in symphonic settings (classical blastbeats!) and much more.
NOTE: As I mention in the intro, my trusty old memory card finally crapped out on me after hundreds of episodes, so this is the backup audio, which means my side of the conversation sounds a little rougher than usual, but it's absolutely still listenable. (I've since acquired a new card, don't worry).
This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company, who have brand new Witchpolice merch in the works! Watch for that!
