Random Zendrum
« on: January 18, 2007, 06:28:40 PM »

OK, here's a trick.

Mess up your Zendrum and your sound modules on purpose.

I did this by having my son go to a setup and just randomly assign pads.

Then he messed with my modules.  Without saving the settings, of course.

Then I gave myself 5 minutes to figure out what sounds were where and came up with something.

Here's the Totally Random 5 minutes from scratch Zendrum jam I ended up with.

Give it a try.  Its pretty weird.

Cool Geo,
Sometimes the best thing you can do is flush your preconceptions and start over from a clean slate.
I like laying my ZX across my lap and playing double overhand style sitting down just to free my mind from 15 years of repetitive practice and gigs standing up.
When you stop thinking and start reacting to what you hear instead, you go to the heart of creative satisfaction MUCH quicker!
I love getting the chance to stretch musically and explore without boundaries.
Rock on!

Yeah, this had me playing in positions I was simply not used to.  Very uncomfortable...

Avast there! 

     I tried playing my ZX upside down, hanging from a yardarm.  It really makes you appreciate the gravity of the situation.  Har Har

Roy "Futureman" plays his Zendrum upside down to the conventional method of playing it. Horses for courses.
