Laurence Pike - Solo Drums/Sampler
Regarded by many as one of the finest drummers of his generation, Laurence Pike is probably best known for his groups PVT and Triosk, as a member of Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders, Szun Waves, and for his work with Sarah Blasko, D.D Dumbo and collaborations with the legendary pianist Mike Nock.
Alone at the instrument Pike is developing a singular language, using the sampler to expand the physical and sonic potential of the drum kit in addition to his already virtuosic ability.
Drawing from his diverse output, this is music aiming to explore an ecstatic musical space, where conventional notions of time and the role of the drummer are placed in the bin.
