"...I also like the shorter pieces - 'Straight to Air' and the solo piano of 'Pill' or solo drums of 'My Eyelashes...' You have clearly retained the love of making music, and found a niche in which you can make it..."

Bill Bruford, Ph.D., drumming legend

"Todd’s prolific and complex contributions on drums, cymbals and percussion lend depth and resonance to his incredible array of electronic applications, creating uncharted forays into sonic alchemy that probably surprised their creator as much as the listener.”

-John Collinge, Progression Magazine

Splinter, 2009

The writing and production of "Splinter" occurred through early 2009, in North Carolina. I recorded the basic drum tracks through 2 Vintech 473 pres, which are nearly indistinguishable from Neve 1073 preamps. The sound on this record is heavily influenced by the sound of those preamps. It's one of my favorite records, ever. I was starting to get comfortable with the idea of "augmented" drumming, and building up a finished composition based on the initial "germ" of an idea laid down in the initial session(s).
