Harrison's rhythmic combo fascinating
Seen enough good videos to care | Canada | 07/12/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Gavin Harrison's rhythmic visions and horizons combo is a great look into the mind of a very accomplished drummer and lucid musical thinker. Although somewhat on the dry side, the material is very well presented, and he flies through the demos of each concept with such ease it's astonishing. The material on the 'visions' disc is more/less in support of his book rhythmic illusions, and as such does not have any text support, which the 'horizons' disc does. His playing is incredibly precise and could even make a study of the improvised pickups he plays on the snare drum to start each demo by themselves. The drums themselves are impeccably recorded, and sound fantastic. Not really recommended for beginners, as the content here has very little to do with the meat and potatoes of drumming skill-it's more like the icing on dessert, and neatly codifies ways of grasping metric modulation, beat displacement, and other arcane rhythmic concepts. That said, it's both great entertainment and deep study for serious musicians and it goes to show drummers how advanced you can get with rhythmic sophistication if you are already a very solid player. Highly recommended, and I thought the 2 disc combo was well priced at about $32.00"
Muy recomendado para Musicos (no solo bateristas)

Hace poco tiempo que conozco el trabajo de Gavin Harrison y solamente por su trabajo con Porcupine Tree. Pero despues de ver la performance del ultimo Modern Drummer festival, me intereso saber mas de este baterista ingles. Es inspirador ver que un video instructivo de bateria, no se queda en la rapidez o artilugios visuales del musico. Muy por el contrario lo que Harrison hace es adentrarse en el concepto de desplazamiento de tiempo y hacer engaños sonoros para el oido acostumbrado a la tipica ritmica de 4/4 . Debo destacar ademas la creatividad de este musico en cuanto desarrollar ideas ritmicas con simples elementos (ver cymbal song y drum song, ademas de ending credits). Creo que este DVD pack puede ser un aporte creativo para todos los musicos, no solo los dedicados a la percusion, a abrir la mente a la creacion fuera de los margenes normales de 4/4. Y por cierto que Harrison no se dedica a tocar temas necesariamente de PT, sino mas bien interpretaciones de sus trabajos como musico de sesion.
El DVD es doble y tiene subtitulos en Italiano y Aleman."
