12 beats per hour

12 beats per hour - one beat every 5 minutes.

This is how I recorded this drumbeat. Every five minutes I was doing one hit on the drumset.

Finally, these single hits were cut together to 75bpm (beats per minute), which lets the day pass by within a few bars. A time-lapse beat, so to speak.

10 hours 'Locked Groove' video

The beats on the album 'Locked Grooves' are cut as endless grooves in vinyl and can therefore run indefinitely.
For this reason, it appealed to me to play one of these rhythms over a whole day on the drums and thus exploit possible lengths of digital formats.

I played the beat on March 18, 2022 from 6:40am (sunrise) to 6:40pm (sunset), with a few breaks. The breaks were shortened to 1-2 minutes for the video.
The result is a 10 hour video.
