Mark Guiliana presents a book/video package designed to expand your musical command of the drumset. One of today s most influential players, Mark is known for his improvisational capability and highly expansive rhythmic palette.
The structure of the book follows a system entitled D.R.O.P.: Dynamics, Rate, Orchestration and Phrasing. Mark pulls apart and addresses each of these building blocks of drumset play individually. The cross-referenced book and video present rhythmic exercises and examples that will expand your ability to call on different rhythmic rates and subdivisions on command, move them around the kit freely, and ultimately be able to phrase them in exciting and sometimes complex ways that sound like polyrhythms and metric modulations but are actually constructed upon a solid foundation of drumming basics. These unique and exciting concepts will give you the confidence to make a personal statement on the drumset.
Adding to this package is live footage of Mark playing with two of his longtime collaborators, Tim Lefebvre (bass) and Jason Lindner (keys). Having played together for years, these three musicians most recently formed the rhythm section for David Bowie s final album, Blackstar. Watch Mark interact with these world-class musicians in electric and acoustic settings as they apply Mark s concepts in inspiring performances.
