about

Widely known as a member of the group Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Brian's current focus is Drums and Drones, a project in which the principles of Just Intonation are applied to drums and percussion. For ICM003, he presents a 7" documenting this work as a solo performer, demonstrating his growing ability to translate complex tuning theories into visceral and exciting pieces of music. The two tracks, “Ride” and “Scratch” use as their sound source a single cymbal and drum respectively.

On “Ride” the cymbal is playing a repeated pattern, imitating a groove played to seduce, causing the cymbal to ring with the shifting timbre of its tintinnabulation, a device to entrance. On “Scratch” the drum is played with a chopstick, imitating the motion of a needle playing a record, coaxing the drum to resonate with sustained tones of choir angels. Both tracks are processed with precise digital equalization according to the Just Intonation tuning theory, greatly bringing out the instruments’ natural acoustic overtones.
