Some music with Brian Trepanier playing drums.

The Music of Junk

This is an animation I made for a project I played drums for in 2014.

next performances November 18-22, 2015 http://www.TheMusicOfJunk.com
Waterfront Theatre on Granville Island, Vancouver, BC, Canada

I was the drummer for the September 2014 debut of "The Music of Junk" at the Vancouver Fringe Festival. After the shows were over, I decided to make an animation of the show as a winter project. At the end of January, I found out about a CG festival called SIGGRAPH that accepts submissions and I saw the festival had a music video category, so I bumped up my planned end-of-February project conclusion one month to make the submission deadline. This is the CG music video result of "1 person, 4 months, an hour here, an hour there".

Audio recorded September 2014 at Firehall Theater
Animation produced October 2014-January 2015
Rendering of animation from February 10th 11pm until February 22nd 9pm.

Software used:
Blender
GIMP
Audacity
a little bit of Makehuman

rendered at 1280x720
85 samples



I was fortunate to perform as original cast in Paul Snider's "Junk! the Musical" (re-tooled as "The Music of Junk") as Jake the drummer.

The musical was written for the Fringe Festival 2014 by Paul Snider, who also built all the instruments. I just showed up with sticks and did my thing.

Drumming solo



Found a forgotten $40 collection of spycams bought off eBay, so put them to the test and filmed this bit of drumming.


Online Collaboration

tests from OnlineJamSessions.com

2013 Cisum A MP3

Disco [Deep Fried] MP3

OnlineJamSessions.com is a site where you can plug in your instrument and jam with people from around the world. These recordings were assembled by James Dean IV (bass, guitars, vocals), located in Ontario Canada, with me on drums in Vancouver, and other instruments from other cities, countries and continents, all performing at the same time. And then edited by James Dean IV.


Improv



Kurt Mang: guitar
Anthony Bischoff: bass
Drums and video by "Me".

Perform with Kurt Mang and Anthony Bischoff under the band name "sPunk", a punk take on 70's and 80's ballads and radio hits. This was a recorded warm up jam at my place.

Critter

April 2005

Chris "Critter" Williams: vocals
Grant Miller: guitar
Heath Hales: bass

On Saturday April 9th 2005, I was asked to play drums on a recording taking place April 12th that the band's regular drummer couldn't make. The recording had to be done before the singer left town that Wednesday. I agreed to help out. Instruments were recorded on the 12th, vocals were dubbed on the 13th.

This song is an original piece written and recorded live off the floor during the recording session at "Charts Rehearsal Studios", located in Vancouver.


AAAnus of SATAN

No explanation could justify AAAnus of SATAN, but here comes one anyway...

A long time ago, there was a website called MP3.com that accepted user-submitted songs. They categorized by song genre and listed alphabetically by band name. AAAoS was made for the purpose of getting a song in each category at the top of the list. Music was recorded in one take, and the vocals added later, often without the benefit of hearing the music.
