This incredible sampling CD offers Afro Techno Ritual Rhythms with drums and percussion as its foundation. The Percussion Wall sound library from Tascam offers a wide range sounds, drum samples, loops, and arrangements with rhythmic pulse divisions (2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and quarter note triplets - 3 against 2). All the 559 loops on Percussion Wall are organized into 8 tempos 160, 140, 130, 120, 118, 110, 100 and 80BPM.
The drum loops on Percussion Wall include a listing of the original stereo loop points, a special feature that sets this audio CD apart. This gives the user CD-ROM features in an audio CD platform. Percussion Wall's printed manual is a 27-page resource that comes with every purchase of this sample library on CD. Important data is listed for each loop that includes sound and music properties. The original drum/percussion loop points can be easily obtained with the information listed in this manual. Tascam Percussion Wall is an extremely versatile sampling CD because it contains complete larger than life rhythm loops that are production ready, also background or rhythms textures that can mix in with other existing music, as well as sonic construction material for creating entirely new drum loops.
Electronic Drummer Dick Gail performed and created a series of drum loops based on African/Jazz rhythm concepts but used contemporary percussion samples for his sound source. His inspiration for these rhythms are the songs from the tribes of the Yoruba, the Bambala, the Zingili, the Mahafaly, the Baya, the Watutsi, and the Badouma, and the work of the great bebop drummers such as Elvin Jones, Max Roach, Art Blakey and Philly Joe Jones. Dick Gail has played with Albert Ayler, Pat Martino, Charles Earland, Groove Holmes, and Dakota Staton to name just a few. He also owns a patent for tuning drums by the use of air pressure and for the past ten years has been the in-house artist for the speaker company Cerwin-Vega.
Ernest Cholakis took these drum and percussion loops and processed and transformed some of them into what he calls Electro-Acoustic transformations. Electro-Acoustic Transformation defines a class of sound processes He has dramatically altered and transformed percussion loops in unique ways that are commercially unavailable.
The transformed loops on this CD were designed to expand the range of sonic and musical creative potential for the user. The results are rhythm building blocks that can be manipulated by any musician or sound designer to create entirely new and different sounding loops from those heard on this CD.
And lastly, in the process of separating the musical elements much work was done to enhance the clarity of many of the very complex rhythms as well as having expanded and extended the timbre of the original performances.
