ABOUT THE CLINIC: Beyond the Box Drumming
Scott has been dubbed the Mad Scientist and Chemist of drumming, inspiring musicians all over the world. From starting viral video madness by putting a rubber chicken in his hi-hat to 4 million views with a drum solo on a 3-piece kit at Drumeo, he has become an influencer for creative, inventive and unique drummers. He utilizes experimental voicing, abstract colors, imaginative textures and soundscapes on the traditional drum kit. DIY musicians have learned how to apply his expressive techniques on the stage and in the studio. His methods push drummers to re-envision everything they know and use everything at their disposal to find a true sound and create the best music possible. In the current music environment, where the human element is less valued than technical precision, Scott encourages risk-taking and embracing imperfection. With one foot firmly planted in the history, tradition, and the art of drumming, and the other foot kicking into the future. Let’s check out the Rhythm Lab
