Casey Foubert/James McAlister: Music for Drums

Catalog: AKR203 • Cover Art: David Stith
Release date: July 7, 2009
  • CD
  • LP

“Music For Drums” is the first in a series of records conceived by Casey Foubert and James McAlister using drums, percussion, and user designed software effects as the sole sound source. Foubert and McAlister drew from both improvised drumming and pattern-based sequencing with samplers to create themes molded into songs. While the concept excludes harmonic and melodic conventions, atonal “melodies” present themselves alongside the groove centered songs.
