Drums + Art = Sound & Vision = Visionary Drum!
I'm a multidisciplinary artist and musician and have been modifying and adding art & design to my own instruments since the 90's when I worked for a major guitar and drum manufacturer and had the chance to use the custom shop for my projects. Over the years I've made and sold lots of modified instruments and have focused more and more on drums in recent years, since they're my favorite instrument to play and they make a perfect canvas for art.
As a drummer, it seems to me that plain white, black or clear drum heads are needlessly boring. By comparison, playing drums directly on art and design is incredibly interesting, and it looks super cool to anyone watching you play. Adding art to the crowd-facing bass drum is a fun, easy, inexpensive way to add to your band's visuals.
My intent is to make drumming a more visual, visceral, visionary experience. There's much more to come, so stay tuned. I'm always interested in seeing your photos of my products in action, so please share! You can find me on instagram: @visionarydrum as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
Visionary Drum is my dream job. Beyond the work itself, getting to know a community of drummers spanning the globe has been absolutely amazing and has made the whole enterprise more rewarding than I could have imagined. So, cheers, drummers--you rock!Thanks for being here! Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or want to collaborate on a project.
