Product Description

Two of the foremost drummers of rock and new age blend their exceptional talents with the latest technology to create a landmark album. On The Big Picture, Michael Shrieve and David Beal produce fully orchestrated music using electronic drum pads and digital samplings. Through this system, a drum-pad can sound like a trumpet, violin, voice, or it can create a completely new sound. Though originally composed on computer, all the music on The Big Picture was played entirely with drumsticks.

This album is a refreshing celebration of rhythm and melody. The pieces compose a dazzling menu, ranging from the exotic to the mischievous, all sharing a compelling vibrancy and excitement.

The Big Picture opens a new door for percussionists. It puts the percussionist on a plane with traditional front line soloists and it elevates him to orchestral arranger, with infinite combinations of sounds, timbres, rhythms, and instrumentations at his disposal.

About the Artist

Michael Shrieve was the legendary drummer for the group Santana. He appeared at Woodstock with Santana and recorded eight albums with the group. He has also recorded on three albums released by the legendary German synthesist, Klaus Schulze. He released his first solo recording entitled Transfer Station Blue (17023-2) on the Fortuna label which features Klaus Schulze and Michael's brother, Kevin Shrieve. Michael co-wrote the music for the film The Bedroom Window.

David Beal has an acute sense of discipline and boundless knowledge of percussion and electronics. He has played with a wide variety of top names in the music business including the Cleveland Philharmonic, jazz guitarist Stanley Jordan and rockers like Joe Cocker, Peter Gabriel, and Madonna.

A must for your music library if you are at all interested in solid artists who actually progress in their craft, rather than remain repetitive. This is very difficult to find.

This is a wonderful artwork combining elegance with imagination. Music leasing to the ear as well as to the spirit and mind. Sound track of my life!

This is what I refer to as, "The Zone" music. Just when one wants to be alone for a spell. And maybe a while in "The Zone", a little reflecting to back/current times around us. Helps me think and really relax.
