Artist Statement

As a drummer my work explores the relationship between genre and technical ability.

With influences as diverse as groove based drumming and blast beats, new variations are created from both traditional and modern techniques.

Ever since I was a student I have been fascinated by the traditional understanding of the mind and body connection when drumming. What starts out as vision soon becomes a reality of trial and error, leaving only a sense of failing, but ultimately, through perseverance, a chance of a new understanding.

As intermittent playing becomes clarified through boundaries and personal practice, one is left with a testament to the possibilities of our existence in a world of rhythm and technicality.
