In The Pocket: Chiminyo

What was the starting point for the Chiminyo set up? Where did the idea for integrated synth triggering come from?

I guess as a drummer your role is supporting others, being part of a whole rather than a soloist. Has this been a big shift in your mindset and how you see yourself as a performer?

Do you find it hard to balance all of your different musical interests and bands? How do you make your life work?

How does your broad attitude to music, as apposed to being a pure drummer, translate to the creative process?

When you watch Chiminyo live and you see a solo drummer creating so many different sounds, there’s a real visual dissonance. How do you think about translating this when recording?
