about

In 2007 I was invited to the Saalfelden Festival in Austria to play my first ever solo concert on electronic drums. It was to be in a small hall, maybe 300 people, in the afternoon. But then, some weeks before the date, there was a cancellation, and so my concert was moved to a prime time evening slot in the main tent - 3,000 people.

I was a bit anxious because the electronics could be iffy - I imagined all sorts of horrors from small program glitches to my main unit not functioning properly at 220 volts and frying, to, oh, I don't know, maybe a complete electrical catastrophe where I blew all fuses, set the tent on fire, and thousands of people cursing me as they ran for their lives.

None of that happened of course, it went off without a hitch. But I did do one smart thing - instead of the festival MC, I got my old friend and Jazz legend Steve Swallow to introduce me, because he is the soul of serenity and I knew nothing would dare to go awry after his vibe. So that is the voice you hear at the top.
