I recorded 14 items on drums and sent them around the world to 14 musicians, who had total liberty to work with my rhythmic blueprint in whatever way they chose. Each item was composed with a particular musician in mind..... in order to be as immersed as possible in each player's unique vision... and also to pay homage to some musicians I very much admired. For diverse reasons, 3 of the 14 musicians had to abandon the project, unfortunately!
At the last minute I decided to round off the Cd with one of the three "orphaned" tracks.
