Beating the drum

Ok, so this has nothing to do with my work, and I put it up here just for fun...

I started playing drums when I was a kid and gave it up when at 17 when I left home to go study at university. Eighteen years later I finally decided to give it another go and got myself Roland's TD-12 set (which I couldn't resist expanding a little). I use V Expression to program the central module and play some nice drum sets. Never have time to dedicate to this hobby... but it's still fun.


2 minutes to midnight with Iron Maiden

I rarely record anything (most of the time it wouldn't be worth it!), but back in 2012 I did have fun playing along Iron Maiden's "2 minutes to midnight". I used to play Iron Maiden songs for hours when I was 14 (to my grand-mother's horror... I think she found their long unruly hair at least as objectionable as their music). Some 20 years later, and feeling quite rusty, I had a go at it again. The drumming is not up to scratch, but hey, it's improvised and it's work in progress.

The drum set is my enhanced Roland's TD-12, and the drums track is recorded using Reaper DAW. Audio-video production in Adobe's SoundBooth.

Playing with Lara Fabian

Playing along Lara Fabian's song "Je t'aime". Quite a leap from Iron Maiden, but a nice track, and such an amazing voice. This track was improvised, just going with the flow.
