Please read the video description for "Hypnotic Nova's Dance" to glean additional information regarding this session.

Here's "Wizardry Mind", the second tune that I did out of Anup's studio for CT. The former was a walk in the park compared to this! Plini (http://soundcloud.com/plini) from Halcyon takes another guest solo from 0:21 - 1:01.

I thought the piece would benefit from a quicker china sound, so I decided to use my 16" ALT. However, towards the end I switched to my usual 19" custom LTD (thus the punch-in at 4:53) for the big half-note whacks for the reprise groove from 0:41.

I love this song. It sounds like the future.

1:52 - 1:53, 2:32 - 2:33, 3:18 - 3:19 - loosen hats a bit
4:47 - 4:54 - some rather unorthodox orchestrations
5:48 - 6:19 - randomly complementing the melodies while changing/building the groove

An hour ago I thought: "maybe I should head over to the studio and get some practicing done", but I didn't cause I was just about to go to bed. Now here I am, an hour later - could've gotten some real work done, but instead I just binged Orbination. Now, I get it - the videos are meant to keep the rest of us from practicing. Well, THANKS A LOT, TRAVIS! Feel good about yourself?

In my humble opinion, the cartoon theory and the 55 cancri are your finest works on drums.

You can tell Travis REALLY digs cartoon theory's stuff; as he should, because it's AMAZING.

Amazing. I feel like an asshole for having a bigger kit but doing far less with it. Very interesting to have the ride far left, 2nd hi-hat, opposite floor toms, etc.

Holy Shit! Im convinced that every single decent drummer on youtube is best friends with Anup Sastry! ahaha I have seen vids now of Anup, Travis, Matt Halpern, Alex Rudinger...the list goes on!
This song is so central to Planet Geisha, I think it should get a remaster with Orbin's 2016 recording equpiment. Plz
