Todd Campbell

"...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


Translation, 2010

"Translation" was recorded in late 2009 through the summer of 2010. The basic premise of augmented drumming still permeates this record, although I started to try to make the music be more capable of being performed live, in a solo context. It's tricky. To me, it's boring watching someone hit the "play" button and play one track over 50 backing tracks. Performing "Translation" live is still a mind-bending task for me; my electronic and synth setup greatly expanded to allow this music to be performed - and played - live.
