Step Away from the Synth: Drummer Demonstrates What Real Music Sounds Like [VIDEO]

With digital music editing so prevalent in the industry, it’s rare to find a beat that hasn’t been digitally synthesized on any of today’s tracks. That’s why this ad for Wikidrummers is striking such a chord with artists.

Rather than digitally altering a drum beat to create different effects, this labor-intensive video directed by Audio Zéro (otherwise known as Vincent Rouffiac) features drummer Julien Audigier playing the same drum pattern in a variety of locations. The reverberations heard in the video are au naturel, showing the different sounds created in different environments when no artificial reverb is added.
