The drum kit is ubiquitous in global popular music and culture, and modern kit drumming profoundly defined the sound of twentieth-century popular music. The Cambridge Companion to the Drum Kit highlights emerging scholarship on the drum kit, drummers and key debates related to the instrument and its players. Interdisciplinary in scope, this volume draws on research from across the humanities, sciences, and social sciences to showcase the drum kit, a relatively recent historical phenomenon, as a site worthy of analysis, critique, and reflection. Providing readers with an array of perspectives on the social, material, and performative dimensions of the instrument, this book will be a valuable resource for students, drum kit studies scholars, and all those who want a deeper understanding of the drum kit, drummers, and drumming.

The drum kit has provided the pulse of popular music from before the dawn of jazz up to the present day pop charts. Kick It, a provocative social history of the instrument, looks closely at key innovators in the development of the drum kit: inventors and manufacturers like the Ludwig and Zildjian dynasties, jazz icons like Gene Krupa and Max Roach, rock stars from Ringo Starr to Keith Moon, and popular artists who haven't always got their dues as drummers, such as Karen Carpenter and J Dilla. Tackling the history of race relations, global migration, and the changing tension between high and low culture, author Matt Brennan makes the case for the drum kit's role as one of the most transformative musical inventions of the modern era. Kick It shows how the drum kit and drummers helped change modern music--and society as a whole--from the bottom up.

The project uses prerecorded speech as a theme in a jazz context and demonstrates through performance: 1) the musical potential of the qualities of speech; that is the sound of speech, and the meanings it carries and moods it conveys, 2) the ways in which speech can be used either directly, or as a source of inspiration in improvisation, and 3) how playing with speech patterns has impacted my drumming. The first recital centres on the performance of pieces that are structured around excerpts of recorded speech. These pieces aim to show how recorded speech can inspire free improvisation. The second recital demonstrates how the study of speech patterns has effected my drumming in a contemporary jazz setting. The outcomes of the recitals are discussed in selected case studies in this accompanying exegesis. The overarching aim is to incorporate speech and speech patterns into my playing in order to achieve a method of phrasing that is not restricted by time signature, subdivisions or conventional jazz rhythms.
