Jeff Bowders Visions

The Pilgrimage of Thingamuhjig: a drum odyssey

I just finished producing and writing two tracks on double-bass drumming master Jeff Bowders‘ debut project, The Pilgrimage of Thingamuhjig. Jeff is an incredibly creative drummer, the author of a few instructional DVD’s (Double Bass Drumming: The Mirrored Groove System, Double Bass Drumming Workshop, and Essential Drumkit Fills) as well as an active session and touring drummer (most notably with Paul Gilbert and a host of others), and a teacher at Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA.

The two tracks I contributed to Jeff’s project are unique to the project. While the majority of the album is pretty hard-driven rock and drumming virtuosity, Nothing Creates Nothing is an ambient excursion, somewhat inspired by Peter Gabriel’s most recent album, but with a very interesting Jojo Mayer-style drum part overlaid. The other, Jocean – The Arrival, is an apocalyptic orchestral piece with Jeff’s drums driving the orchestra.

Anyone have an RX560/RX570/RX580 video card they're getting rid of? I'm on the lookout for one to complete a setup.

Had a great time talking shop with a talented bunch of composers and songwriters from @The_SCL. Business, creative, technical, marketing, nowadays we wear all the hats in order to do what we love. https://t.co/jEeFSu0usd daviddas photo

Run, don't walk to grab the most ridiculous deal for a Photoshop killer. I love @Pixelmator and have used it for years. https://t.co/2LJkj6F8ME
