The Big Note #24 – Percussion, Drums, Rhythm & Beat

On the 24th Big Note we play some wonderful music from Australia and around the world, mostly focusing on percussion & drums, a topic that has once again caught my ear, especially after experiencing Stephanie Lake Company’s “Manifesto” at the Arts Centre a few weeks ago, a truly stunning, “electrifying performance with nine dancers and nine drummers on nine drum kits set against a towering watermelon-velvet curtain, each drummer and dancer work in unison to create a powerful collision of movement and percussion” (from The Arts Centre’s event page) World and eclectic music is prominent in this episode, but we also examine the phenomenon of “The Amen Break” in modern music, as well as delve into the making of the iconic “Gated Reverb” sound, discovered by Phil Collins & producer Hugh Padgham whilst Phil was in the studio playing drums for Peter Gabriel’s track “Intruder” from his self-titled 3rd album.
