Era-spanning dance-scapes feature ethereal arpeggios, thumping acid basslines and heavy beats at a gig from the percussionist’s electronic solo project.
With each crash of the cymbal or thump of the kick drum a cascade of elevating electronic sounds are triggered and generated by Chiminyo’s self-designed software.
The innovative set-up allows him to be in complete control, freeing him from all loops, click-tracks and backing tracks. Every synth, sample and sound effect is performed live, in real time.
Tim Doyle, aka Chiminyo, is a drummer and percussionist for a host of vital acts from the current London jazz scene, including Maisha and Theon Cross. He released his debut as Chiminyo, I Am Chiminyo, in April 2019.
