You’ve brought some electronics into your mix with the Korg Wavedrum.
"I’ve actually got the original Wavedrum as well, that cost about the price of a car. I love it. I’m going to use it on Porcupine Tree’s shows soon."
"I’ve steered away from electronics for a very long time. Back in the ’80s I was triggering samples while I was playing with Iggy Pop and in the ’90s when I was playing with Lisa Stansfield. I pretty much hate electronics because they are temperamental. They’ll trigger, they’ll double trigger and then they won’t trigger. It is very hard to get them to go consistently and in time. They drove me crazy so I gave up using pads and electronics."
"I don’t really enjoy playing pads, just hitting a piece of plastic and hearing a sample come out doesn’t really vibe me up but the Wavedrum is different. It feels like you’re involved in the sound because the head is live. Everything you do on the head, if you’re brushing it or scraping it with your fingernails or muting it with your hand, all that is coming through mixed in with the electronics so you do feel like you’re making a sound that you’re creating."
