Because it’s Friday: Portrait of the ghost drummer

I love to watch drummers. I especially love being mesmerised by watching the sticks fly around the drum kit and marvelling as they switch from snare to cymbals, from  low tom to high tom.

Ghost Drummer is a multidisciplinary project that explores graphic qualities in process of playing on a drum kit. Besides being a musician, drummer when playing is unconsciously engaged in an elaborate choreography. The drum sticks are the extensions of drummer’s hands like a brush is an extension of the painter’s hand.

This video shows the dance of the drumsticks:
