Mike Mangini has taken the world of drumming by storm. He's toured the world, generously provided educational clinics to thousands of drummers, and cemented his place in the history of the greatest rock and progressive drummers. Even more impressive is his approach, as he's a true theorist on rhythm with his own learning system titled "Rhythm Knowledge."
Mangini's role in joining acclaimed artists like Annihilator, Extreme, Steve Vai and U.K. are extraordinary, but his role in Dream Theater has brought a new dimension to an already legendary career.
As millions can attest, his drumming with Dream Theater continues to marvel musicians and fans worldwide. His performances are jaw dropping. He's added a unique rhythmic personality into the band's sound that is powerful. He executes his role as drummer with extraordinary seriousness and dedication.
As he ventures into the art work with this debut collection, he brought this same focus into the visuals that now mark this unique art debut. And as seen in this artwork built from rhythm, his commitment to dexterity, shapes, and his unique approach is truly inspiring when visually translated. The result is a collection that speaks to the power of time-developed skill.
