\"\'Life on Drums\' is my reaction to all the bad instructional videos Iíve seen. Much of whatís out there tends to put a lot of focus on technique, but most creative things donít come from technique. I want the viewer to see this and come away with the idea that they can be an artist Ė you donít need this full spectrum of technique before you can start thinking creatively.\"
Accompanying Martin on this voyage is Allen Herman, Martinís first drum teacher. The two converse about matters both practical and artistic, and it is their easy yet insightful rapport that helps to illuminate even the most elusive ideas.
This dvd is equally relevant to newcomers as it is to experienced musicians with beautifully filmed performances of Billy Martin\'s compositions for percussion ensemble and improvised trap set solos and duets.
The resulting film ó fiery and passionate yet practical and insightful ó is a riveting extension of Billy Martin\'s open-ended approach to percussion, improvisation, and music. Comments Martin on his new dvd:
\"Life on Drums is about the art of drumming and percussion, and my concepts, methods, and philosophy of what is important. I\'m trying to be as honest and sincere as I am about who I am and what I\'m trying to say, and then demonstrate how these philosophies can be used. I want people to see this film and realize that, no matter what degree of technical skill they possess, they can be an artist.\"
\'Life on Drums\' is now available for $19.99.
