Demonic Sweaters - Ghost Image (drum playthough)
 
Here's a drum playthrough of my song Ghost Image off of my album Polybius. This one was released last Halloween as a halloween special video.

I created all of the music and video in Ubuntu Linux 16.04LTS. The music sequence was composed in LMMS then exported stems to Mixbus 3.6 where I mixed it and recorded the drums. I mastered the track in Audacity and edited the video in Kdenlive. 


On my drums I DO NOT USE any time correction, samples, triggers, or any other software to correct or enhance playing other than standard mixing practices (eq, compression, limiters, and sometimes reverb).
