Band of The
The Rock-n-roll, Drum-n-bass, ElectroClash or CyberPunk
genres don't accurately describe what I'm doing in this
project, so I made up the Grok-n-Roll
genre for it..
The word Grok
is from a favorite novel of mine: "Stranger
in a Strange Land" by Robert A. Heinlein.
My intent is to bring myself, my band & the audience
at one with transcendent, brain entraining rhythms &
tones. So really, Drumadelic is a cymatic band.
= The science of wave phenomena pioneered by Swiss medical
doctor & natural scientist, Hans Jenny. Jenny used pure
tones to produce physical representations of vibration (i.e.
how sound manifests into form through physical mediums).

per minute plus video flashing at simalrly resonating speeds
to evoke visceral responses.
is coordinated multi-media sensory overload; an audio &
photon emitting vortex. I design each live show to be a musical
seance seeking contact with the supernal.
Here's the ad-copy I used to promotethe project:
"Part live performance, part DJ, part Synema,
, ALL sense- surrounding multi-media music.. Lend me your
eardrums that they may be set to flutter in ecstatic communion
with sacred tones & secret rhythms."
Drumadelic.com will soon re-appear to announce the re-launch
date for this "Sonic Bloom". This is a
collective of drummers & melodic instruments of all types.
If you are an experimental musician, contact
me to get invovled. I'll upload some more tracks soon.
here for an audio-visual Drumadelic
collage from the "Apocalypse Near" DJ set.
The "Apocalypse Near" set will most likely be the
first Drumadelic show depending on which single I release
first. Other shows in production are entitled ; "Leaving
To Zion", (a dub reggae show), The" War On War"
anti-war show, & "Fight Like A Brave", which
features the war drum rhythms & shamanic drumming of the
plains & Hopi tribes juxtaposed against some extremely
distorted guitars.. Other shows in production are Le' Sexe'
show .. "And for pure fun, there's "The Trash Daze
Of Disco" show, which is all about twisted versions of
disco hits & obscure funk B-sides mixed with some electro-clash
songs of my own.
