EQUIPMENT

I'm proficient in a bunch of equipment. I'm kinda geeky about wires and signal routing and can answer most questions related to electronic music and the machinery that makes it. I expect that this creative venture may result in triggered sequences but, for now, all my playing is real-time (no backing/loop tracks being triggered and together we can work if/what/when sequences are triggered).

Normally I would think what kind of equipment I use is largely irrelevant. Tama drums or Pearl drums, 2 toms or 10? No big difference really. However, I am playing a very odd drum-set worthy of mentioning. The drum-set includes a 3-octave midi controller that permits melodic and percussive parts to share a rhythmic base. So the drumparts follow melodic structure. That's why patience is needed, a drummer following melodic structure.... I've included a video of a midi-controller using a xylophone; while this is not the instrument I normally play, it has the same versatility.
