HI. The reference to executors: If you want, I can make and write down in studio of party of drums for your demos. If your composition already has party of live drums I would like to offer the sight and improvisation to your composition. It is interesting and unusual. If you use electronic tools and samples I would ask you to reflect and present: as in your ready tracks my parties of live drums would sound. It is very interesting. It removes ambitions. It forces to think differently. Let’s try?!!! I the drummer. I play 18 years, worked in creation and arrangements more than in 170 musical compositions which are on the Internet. It is work with several groups in which I played and I play. At In one time in 5 groups. All of them have the written down albums. But we would like to have possibility to publish albums on foreign labels. And still my personal desire, can be dream: I very much would like to have vacancy in foreign group. Because life of the musician-it change of currents, calms and storm, inflow and at music ocean. I address to you with the request. If in your project or working in studio will be a vacancy, or can be in projects of your friends-musicians there will be a vacancy for interesting, maybe a crazy drummer. That I will be very glad to your letter with the information on it. Yes, sometimes I write at the wrong time because the project can be already completed. But there is a miscellaneous. I Simply ask you not to forget about me. I think, if you invite me in the project, I won’t disappoint you and your listeners. It speaks not only my experience but the sincere approach to business.THANKS.
