“这是一种建立基础的奇怪方式–通常没有和声成分，但我们知道我们可以争取我们的音乐朋友来帮助我们弄清楚这些节拍想要去哪里。潜入这种未知的感觉是诱人的，并且以他们甚至无法想象的方式描绘了一幅音符画布。我们对所有的节奏、情绪和风格都持开放态度，但最终我们都没有去过的地方。” – 豪尔打击乐
布莱恩-罗森沃塞尔从90年代初开始与他的乐队Guster一起精心创作歌曲。在Guster 1999年的开创性专辑《Lost & Gone Forever》（由Steve Lillywhite制作）中，他只使用了他那套折衷的手鼓，没有使用鼓棒，将他的康加琴视为动态乐器，而不仅仅是节奏上的伴奏。作为一个作词人、编曲人和作曲人，布莱恩看到了鼓声之外的整个画面，并继续与Guster一起在世界各地巡演。
During the pandemic, percussionists Brian Rosenworcel and Daniel Freedman formed a unique bond together going on hikes percussing on forest trees, discussing life and creativity, and finding therapy in music out of unusual objects to keep themselves sane. They spent lockdown building a deep relationship that allowed for open communication and an earned feeling of unencumbered honesty which allowed them to be their purest creative selves. Inspired by their connection, the duo teamed up to form Howl Percussion, a mini group who’s musical philosophy starts with drums and the rhythmic beat at the heart of each track.
“It’s a strange way to build a foundation – often with no harmonic component, but we knew we could enlist our musical friends to help us figure out where these beats wanted to go. Diving into this unknown felt inviting and a sonic canvas was painted in ways they couldn’t have even imagined. We were open to all tempos, moods, and styles, but ended up places neither of us had been before.” – Howl Percussion
What was born from this connection was Secrets in the Air, a brilliant cinematic score that connotes movement, excitement, action, and mischief. Ideally suited for a heist scene, a car chase, or as the backdrop to a confident hero seizing the day, this sample pack is a powerful eclectic collection of drums, world percussion, brass, and horns. Expertly recorded and brilliantly diverse, this pack is bound to have the right sample to fit any production, score, video game soundtrack, or sync placement that needs energy with a little bit of mystery.
Daniel Freedman extends well beyond the reach of his drum kit. A master rhythmic catalyst, he brings a boundless imagination to his gift for sonic alchemy, with influences ranging from swinging jazz to deep-rooted blues, along with wide-ranging traditions from Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and beyond. His skills have led him from the fertile early ‘90s scene at Smalls Jazz Club in New York City to the Broadway stage, as part of David Byrne’s acclaimed “American Utopia” as well as the movie version of the show, directed by Spike Lee.
Brian Rosenworcel has been crafting songs with his band Guster since the early 90’s. On Guster’s seminal 1999 album “Lost & Gone Forever” (produced by Steve Lillywhite) he used only his eclectic kit of hand drums and no sticks, viewing his congas as dynamic instruments and not just rhythmic accompaniments. As a lyricist, arranger, and songwriter, Brian sees the whole picture beyond the drums and continues to tour worldwide with Guster.
