Percussion & synth artists

Post by flabby » Fri Mar 01, 2019 5:18 pm

So I stumbled across this festival, drums/percussion and electronics, and I was wondering who are some of your favorite artists in the same vein? Old or new. Purely live drums and electronics.

Looks fun. James Holden has some lovely stuff with live drums
Thom Yorke comes to mind. Three Trapped Tigers too.

Some of my favorite bands combine electro, electric, and acoustic, including percussion—Broadcast, Portishead, Stereolab, etc.

my new record moto perpetuo will come out in around two weeks on marionette,
i recorded it with michael anklin, a drummer/percussionist and the whole thing became one big instruments (interconnected with cv and triggers etc):

Timoka/Kilchhofer makes fantastic music, nothing to be ashamed of...

Talking of self-promotion, I've just re-edited my 2008 album Faux World. It's full of exotic percussions turned into a feverish mess.

‘The New Deal’ has drums, synth, and bass and is fantastic. They have some good albums but they are largely improv based so live shows are the best way to experience their sound. There are 300+ free and legal recordings here:

The keyboard player - Jamie ‘guitar’ Shields is amazing. Nothing sequenced.

Klaus Schulze performed some gigs with a live drummer (I believe it was Harold Grosskopf). Schulze was part of Stomu Yamashta's Go which also included Michael Shrieve, Al Di Meola and Steve Winwood.

Tangerine Dream had a live drummer (Klaus Krieger) for a couple of years in the early 80's.

Somewhat more contemporarily:

- Radio Massacre International member Steve Dinsdale sometimes plays an acoustic drum kit in their concerts.
- Ron Boots (from the Netherlands) often performs with drummer Harold van der Heijden. Although Harold plays an electronic, not acoustic, kit.
- Keller & Schonwalder often perform with electronic drummer Bas Broekhuis.

Nitzer Ebb. Especially live. It’s very very powerful music live. The cds are good, but they’re definitely a live band!

I was on the verge of sending this one to the charity shop (thrift store) some years ago. But then I gave it "one last listen"...

same here! although my release is about a decade old now... purely non-sequenced synths and live drums, multi-tracked. trying to sound like a power pop trio, or something... :despair:



for live drums and synths, I always loved a lot of the stuff coming out of Chicago. Tortoise, Isotope 217, Euphone are some; also Trans Am (out of DC/LA).

Harald Grosskopf is perhaps THE drummer to play percussion with electronics. He could/still can keep up with the electronics and make it sound alive and inventive. This one is absolutely breathtaking stuff... You:"Electric Day"

Always liked Heldon (French "electronic rock" band active in the 70s, headed by Richard Pinhas) when it comes to live drum kit with electronics.
Here's a good example (long piece with slowly building intro-which ends around 3:45 when the drums really kick in).

Or, if it's percussion you're interested in, there's this track one of their earlier albums:

Yep-well put, Harald is great. Loved his playing on the classic K. Schulze albums.
He also put out a terrific solo album around 1980, which I bought on vinyl back then (think it's somewhat rare, but was reissued in 2014). Check it out:
