New software has been developed that gives drummers the freedom to speed up or slow down the pace of the music with any pre-programmed material following their lead.
It means that drummers will no longer have to keep time with a click track and the set beat of pre-recorded tracks that are are used during live performances and studio sessions.
The software has been developed by Dr Andrew Robertson, a Royal Academy of Engineering/EPSRC Research Fellow at Queen Mary, University of London, initially as part of his EPSRC-funded PhD project.
This film was made in a single day at Queen Mary University, London using A Sony Z5 HD camera and Canon 5 D Mk 2.
Thanks to Jane, Andrew and the two David’s for a great day working on this facinating project.
