Orange Percussion

The "Board" to the left of my stand up drum kit features all kinds of
springs and metal bits to bang on. Besides standard mics, I attached a
contact mic to the bottom the "The Board." 

Working on a new percussion and drum set sounds, performances and loops for the Rats & Gassers:Kustom Kulture Takes A Ride Soundtrack and my new album Burnt Orange. Using mallets I played various one hits and rhythms into my older Mac  running Cubase VST and then exported the tracks for editing in Reason 6. Pretty exciting stuff, new timbres and directions for my rhythm tracks. I am looking for a more organic, found sound percussion sound, kinda like Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake's  work with Latin Playboys.
