I started playing drums at the age of 13, I am now 35; college, work, family, etc., have made the time I get to spend really learning and taming this beautiful instrument a fine commodity, no (...) Show morenetheless, my love and passion for drumming has endured over the years. I am also very passionate about the recording, mixing, and mastering aspects of creating music; I am very happy to finally have the ability to record my drums and cymbals with tools that let me hear my nuances, imperfections, etc., and use this as vehicle for advancement of my craft. Being an engineer by daytime, audio signal flow, miking and phase principles, mixing, processing, etc. are all aspects that I just love to explore. I hope this solo pieces portrays my passion for both playing and recording, it was a lot of work and it had to be worked around many many other commitments and challenges. If you're a young player and you're reading this, treasure every minute you get to spend with your instrument.. oh and have a lot of fun, and record yourself often!
Comence a tocar bateria a los 13 años, ahora tengo 35, la universidad, el trabajo, la familia, etc., han hecho que el tiempo dedicado a realmente aprender y domar este bello instrumento sea un lujo, sin embargo, mi amor y pasion por la bateria han perdurado a travez de los años. Tambien me apasionan mucho la grabacion, mezcla y masterizado como medios creativos de musica y sonido; estoy muy contento de finalmente tener las herramientas necesarias para poder grabar mi bateria, lo cual me permite escuchar todos los matices, imperfecciones, etc., de mi ejecucion y usarlos como un vehiculo para seguir aprendiendo y mejorando en mis habilidades y musicalidad. Siendo a la vez un ingeniero durante el dia, me encanta exlorar aspectos tecnicos del audio como el flujo de señal audio, tecnicas de microfoneo y correlacion de fase, mezcla y procesamiento de audio etc. Espero que esta pieza ejemplifique mi pasion por tocar bateria y grabar audio, fue arduo trabajo y tuve que hacerlo enmedio de muchisimos compromisos y desafios. Si eres un baterista joven y estas leyendo esto, atesora y aprovecha cada minuto que tengas con tu instrumento... y tambien diviertete mucho y grabate seguido! Show less

I love music and I can’t see myself doing anything other than this in Munich life. I express myself best when I’m sitting behind the drum kit - it feels like home. I’ve been drumming since I was 10 ye (...) Show morears old, and have been playing professionally since I was 14 years old. I grew up in a musically family and played in church - I owe so much to my parents for supporting my music. My first band experience was my own project with my brother called Coals of Juniper - an instrumental prog-rock band. Those are still my favourite musical memories. I started sessioning when I was 15 years old and throughout the years I’ve been able to play with incredible musicians who inspire me and from whom I’ve learnt so much from. I achieved my Gr8 Trinity College qualification when I was 16 years old and went on to study music and receive my Honours Degree in Music Education. I have played at all the major festivals in and around South Africa and have had the privilege of travelling to many countries because of music. My current project is a group called EASY FREAK that makes pop/RnB/fun music and I have been able to stretch myself musicially, in terms of song-writing and composing. My goals are to keep pursuing music in as much of a business-minded way as possible, to treat myself and my skill as a brand and to truly enjoy every moment. Show less

At that age i listened a lot of metal music, so my references were Metallica or Avenged Sevenfold.
I've boult an Indie Rock band at 15 years old, where i started to have my first experiences with the live music, and with the recording sessions in studio, up untill 18 years old, where i decided to move into a Fusion Band.
With the development of my technique and my listenings, i approached the Jazz music at 19 years old, and i am still exploring this world, in which i feel to have found the dimension of expression that i was searching since the beginning. I've played the drums for many years, but i've started to be disciplined and to REALLY study this instrument for 7 months, after i decided to fully take this path for my life, due to the fact that this is what i trully love to do, so i can be my best while drumming, and it's my intention to bring this to the world!!!
Right now I am playing with a modern jazz band trio wherewith i've recorded some songs in studio a couple of months ago and with other jazz and latin project for different occasions. I am also frequenting the first year of conservatory.
I am inspired by the american way of playing the drums, and i am inspired by drummers like Eric Harland, Jack DeJohnette, Justin Brown and much more.
Thank you guys for organizing such a cool contest like this one!!!
I've recorded a video 40 seconds longer so i had to cut a little of begin and end! Show less

Show moreon to other musicians) and now I am in three different bands, playing from 4-6 times a week, while I still attend (arts) school an do all that which a 21 year old does. Influences have been all over, starting from metal then slowly progressing to most music. groovy, funky, heavy.. I love it all!
In no means am I endorsed by any company but i am backed by my family, providing me with the never ending sticks heads and cymbals, since I can't afford all that equipment myself. Thanks mom!
If you want to keep it short, I guess I have no choice. But I suggest you get to know me better in person ;)
Music and art overall are what needs to prevail in this age, bringing love and joy, so if I could reach as many people as I can to make their life at least a little easier or awaken beauty inside someone, that would be...
sponsors welcome, I don't bite* :)
