Hudson Musics latest video release, Liquid Drum Theater, is a two-tape box set that documents the outstanding drumming of Mike Portnoy. A multiple category winner in recent Modern Drummer Magazine readers Polls, Portnoy has become one of todays most popular and influential drummers through his work with Dream Theater and Liquid Tension Experiment.
Volume One features music from the two Liquid Tension Experiment CDs and includes footage shot at Millbrook Studios, where both were recorded. Mike performs eight songs/segments and breaks down the drum parts from each. In addition he explains how to develop a "toolbox" of fills and patterns to draw from. Also featured throughout is exclusive "home footage" of the making of the first LTE album.
Volume Two focuses on the music of Dream Theater and features footage shot at Beartracks Studios. Mike performs eleven songs/segments from the "Falling Into Infinity" and "Scenes From a Memory" CDs and isolates the drum parts from each song. He also discusses playing in odd-time signatures, developing double bass technique, soloing and much more. Also included is exclusive live footage of Dream Theater from their 1998 World Tour.
The two-tape set (#HDZLQ02) has a combined running time of 175 minutes and carries a suggested list price of $59.95. Like the rest of Hudsons expanding library of high-quality instructional music videos, Liquid Drum Theater is distributed by Hal Leonard Corp. and is available at leading music stores and drum shops.
