- I love To Drum ! You Love To Drum! We love To Drum !
But it is not always fun to Drum all by yourself, right? That is why God (or any other force that lets you sleep at night) made the Drum-Play-Along. That is why we, here at IADIAB, cherish the Drum-Play-Along in an extraordinary way and try to push it forward. We had the idea, not only to make some music without the drumtrack, but to really create full conceptual elaborated constructs that are basically fictional Bands - with weird but lovable musicians, extravagantly lighted rehearsal rooms, a weird but lovable fan base AND one thing that is missing ... the Drummer!
We take a genre that interests us, try to find its special ingredients and then think what could we would do with that — from the basic song structure, the chosen instruments and equipment, the sung and unsung words and the whole background story ... to the recording stage and how we think the mix and master should sound like... that takes a lot of time, thoughts and heart - but we think it is worth it!
We chose I'm A DRUMMER IN A BAND as the overall theme, because rather than supporting the single person on the stage showing off his mind-muscle-magic — We do this for the sweaty (in a sexy way) musician, which sits behind the Band but is nonetheless (arguably) its most fundamental part on the stage.
That is why we hope that our Drum-Play-Alongs are not only fun to Drum to, but also can ask you questions that help you to become a better Drummer in a conceptual way - in the way you compose and articulate your Drumwork according to the Song.
As we said, this is very time-consuming and we don't want to rush things that would compromise the overall quality. So, we try to release a new fictional band every 3 – 6 months. If you don't want to miss anything, check the NEWS section and get the IADIAB newsletter.
