He is indeed a great drummer.

Oh. I don't use them on the bass. I put an old pillow inside to absorb the overtones...

I am trying to find a place where there is enough resonance without too much ringing. So much depends on the room, and even I have noticed the tone seems to change when I put up the Paiste 2002 or the K Zildjians, like the cymbals are also sympathetically ringing with the drums.

Its a darn black art!!

I think I need a drum tech who can do it all for me.

Absolutely! Drums and cymbals are very active modifiers of an acoustic space. There are so many interactions going on, especially with a big set.

Yes totally agree. They, drums and cymbals, are either in pure harmony with each other or fighting each other. It's a bit like a family. Sometimes everyone is getting on, there is love and harmony. Sometimes, someone is creating dissonance.
I just finished researching the hauntingly beautiful song that was sung last night by Mariene de Castro as the Olympic flame was extinguished. It was "Pelo Tempo que Durar" by Marisa Monte. The melancholy nature of the piece perfectly fit the mood for putting out the flame. Simply sublime.

I love when life throws these gems our way.

(And of course, I ordered the CD with the piece on it.)
Agree, Nung. I also wondered if she was lip synching when that water started falling.
Perfect music for a closure, though. (and the sculpture/mobile was incredible).

I am still in Dreamyland. Such a lovely song and you are so right, that sculpture was so cool.

So I received the CD and am about 1/2 way through. Very nice! So...Brazilian!
But I of course played the main piece and it was lovely to finally hear it clearly. And as I did I felt that the piece sounded identical to the presentation at the Closing Ceremony. So I am starting to think she might have lip synched. I'll spin it on the DVR again and compare to the CD and report.

But who cares? The moment--with the music and the sculpture and fire and the rain--was positively ethereal.
