about

The Drum spotlights Andrew Drury as a composer/improviser/soloist who renders 53 minutes of solo floor tom music not as a tedious exercise in sado-narcissism, but rather as a mind opening and surprisingly appealing manifesto on acoustic experimentalism. And he does so without ever actually striking the drum, employing extended techniques he has developed that treat his drum as a wind instrument and acoustic filter for friction.

“...an ingenious work that highlights Drury's fertile imagination, audacious musicianship and unparalleled virtuosity.”
--Hrayr Attarian, All About Jazz

“Andrew Drury’s imagination knows no bounds.” --S. Victor Aaron, Something Else!

“Nobody to my knowledge has done so thorough and creative a job unveiling the untraditional sound possibilities (of a single drum) and working to create a series of aural segments, each unique. The music gotten by these means seems to be both very primal and ultra-avant, noisy but resonantly acoustic. It is a rather amazing album...” --Grego Applegate Edwards, Gapplegate Music Review
