Professor Phil Moriarity: The University of Nottingham crowd-sourcing project analyzing the physics and art of drumming

Professor Phil Moriarity at The University of Nottingham is crowd-sourcing a physics graduate project analyzing the physics and art of drumming. The original paper authored by Elsa Rasanen is titled: Fluctuations of Hi-Hat Timing & Dynamics in a Virtuoso Drum Track of Popular Music Recordings analyzes Joe Pocaro's (genius) playing on Michael McDonald's "I Keep Forgetting." Now they are extending the scope of their analysis to include other players and styles and are crowd sourcing for videos from other drummers to add to the project.

The next song/artist they are analyzing in comparison to "I Keep Forgetting" is, "Tom Sawyer" by Rush.

Part One of this video:

Professor Phil Moriarty explains an experiment and wants drummers of all skill levels to take part. More from Phil:

Yvette Young: belongings stolen - please help

Yvette Young

My car window got smashed at my show in San Francisco tonight and someone stole all the things in my backseat, including a portfolio of artwork that I held very dear to me. I feel so heartbroken having hours and hours of tedious labor just taken from me. I poured my heart and soul into those drawings and paintings and now they're gone. I don't even have a photo to remember them by. People can be really wretched to each other...

On the upside, none of my guitars were stolen, and I learned that I have the most supportive friends and fans in the world who I love and cherish very much. Also, the show was tight.

If you know anything or can help PM Yvette
