*For my original track 'Electrolegs' from my band The New Caledonia-
*Here is my 10min Meshuggah Medley-
This was filmed and recorded as one continuous, single take with no editing to the videos or drums in post production.
I put this medley together to show my interpretation of some of my favorite Jon Theodore/The Mars Volta moments. I am not claiming these to be his or The Mars Volta's most challenging parts, they are just some of my favourites from my favourite Volta drummer. I did this solely to challenge myself.
Once I had chosen the grooves I wanted I arranged them using Ableton Live. The only changes I made to the arrangement was to shorten double chorus's that led into sections I wanted to use. I was aiming for flow, groove and climax with the arrangement. It was important to me that all the parts worked together and I kept it at 10mins in length. I did not make any changes to song tempos. I committed the whole medley to memory and learnt it all by ear. I do not transcribe.
I played along to the medley only in my in-ears with no click track except at 8:27 where the drums stop momentarily.
The details of the tracks are:
0:00 'Roulette Dares' - De-Loused in the Comatorium (0:00-0:41, 1:58-3:00)
