Sean Meehan is an NYC based drummer who has gradually pared down his kit to a single snare. From it he conjures held pitches of astonishing purity by placing cymbals on the drumhead and gently sounding their surfaces, or maybe he conjures his tones via some form of alchemy; god knows as it certainly doesnít sound anything like a snare drum. This might sound highly technical I guess, and it is; but more importantly, I think Seanís work is some of the most radical and beautiful music you could experience: brave, spartan, a slow motion ritual of intensity and concentration.
