Dear friends of djummi records,
“Bionics (…) is the application of biological methods and systems found in nature to the study and design of engineering systems and modern technology.” These are the words from Wikipedia to shortly describe, what’s behind the term Bionic. Examples for technologies copied from nature are versatile and reach from complex to banal, from something like a sonar to hook-and-loop fasteners and suction cups. Keep this in mind, when listenting to Bionic, Dave Schoepke‘s first single of his upcoming EP called Drowning In Snow, awaited in November. And if you like, take it as an invitation to just for fun philosophize about technical progress and the question, if mankind is more clever then nature and if robot bees will finally save the world.
But what about the music? Bionic is somekind of a find, dates from 1992 and is maybe Dave’s earliest solo drumming work. It’s inspired by John Bonham, but already bears his own rhythmical signature you might know from his releases from the recent past. But Bionic has a more destinct demanding character, which in parts will be the case on the EP Drowning In Snow as well.
So, feel free to experience this special piece of music, stay curious about the upcoming whole album and: Get inspired for some intellectual game maybe!
