100 years of pop music evolution from the viewpoint of the drummer.
The new Drum Channel DVD The Century Project is the culmination of a journey begun a dozen years ago, when Daniel Glass started researching the evolution of the drums and the way we play them. Through his research, he came to a startling conclusion: if we understand more about the drum set, we can understand the origin of every style of popular music we play and listen to today: jazz, rock, blues, hip-hop, funk, reggae, etc.
The DVD takes the viewer on a 100-year thrill ride, from 1865 at the end of the Civil War right up to 1965 and the dawn of the British Invasion. It shows how drums and pop music evolved hand-in-hand, and how, by 1965, the drumming blueprint that we still follow to this day had been cemented.
