Pearl Jam and Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron is teaming up with former Nirvana and current Melvins drummer Dale Crover for a new project. Toshi Kasai, the legendary recording engineer & producer, has a new project: Plan D. Enlisting the best drummers in the world as his “source material”, Plan D is one of the most unique projects in modern music.
From his LA studio, Toshi created a complex drum-triggering system that is the catalyst for Plan D. He’s spent the last several years luring drummers into his Sound of Sirens studio, and just letting them go nuts behind the kit… Meanwhile Toshi has been behind the board, capturing the signal from each drum hit, and sending that signal to a variety of analog synthesizers. What results is some of the craziest sounding prog-like instrumental music you’re likely to ever hear.
Plan D is an ongoing project, with four different installments being released throughout 2020. The first part “SW” features the following drummers:
Dale Crover (Melvins, Redd Kross, Nirvana, Hew Time)
Coady Willis (Big Business, Melvins, The Murder City Devils, Hew Time)
Clem Burke (Blondie, Eurythmics)
Matt Cameron (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden)
Joe Plummer (Mister Heavenly, Cold War Kids, The Shins, Hew Time)
Paul Christensen (Qui, hepa.Titus)
Troy Zeigler (Serj Tankian, Juliette Lewis, Buckethead)
