Drumspeak v2 focuses on the presentation of rhythm via the voice. Unlike the natural cadence of hearing a voice through talking or singing, this project focuses more on how percussion-based rhythms can be translated and represented vocally. This piece brings together the efforts of multiple drummers/musicians into a video-based composition playing with synchronicity, time, and flow.
