Pat Mastelotto, master of acoustic drums as well as electronic percussion. With Crimson since 1994.
Pat Mastelotto practically started playing drums in a camp as his first three lessons came during a summer arts program when he was 10 years old and has built such an extensive resume that squeezing it into this paragraph would require a geometric miracle.
Pat continues to record and perform around the world in a multitude of projects, and is dedicated to embracing new technologies. He proposes to do mornings on the practice pad with any and all level campers (Pat has the distinction of double drumming with Bill Bruford, Terry Bozzio, Gavin Harrison, and soon you). He will also spend time each day explaining the ‘hows and whys; of his use of electronics and allowing students to interact with his gear – possible Pro Tools Q/A on recording drums at home, everyone is home recording and after almost 40 years of working in some of greatest studios with some of the greatest engineers he’s learned a lot.
