Tradition meets innovation meets cutting edge technology.
Traditional instruments and rhythms from around the world are brought together with 21st Century performance tools, live audio processing and sound manipulation in a truly unique and innovative delivery. All instruments are played, sampled, mixed & processed live on stage in a synthesis of traditional musicianship and live electronics.
The result is Drumscapes – a unique blend of rhythmic soundscapes, bouncy world rhythms & high energy drumming.
Jon’s Drumscapes performance at TEDxWarwick was selected for the TEDx Global Music Project in the Worldbeats category: http://tedxmusicproject.com/category/worldbeats/
The TEDx Global Music Project is a selection of the best music performances from over 10,000 Ted events worldwide.
Jon also performed Drumscapes at TEDxBrum in 2016. Click here to watch video from TEDxBrum 2016
