In the Summer of 2006 I was invited by the University of Derby, to give a second Drum recital, in the big hall of their Multifaith Centre - ‘A summer Evenings Drumming.’ Afterwards a man in the audience said that he had a recording studio at Marehay, [Derbyshire, UK] and invited me to visit. I recorded 3 sessions with him, at the first of which I played the six inventions here. The instrument is a beautiful American Frame Drum, sometimes called a Shamanic Drum, lent to me for the performance by Pat Duncliffe, Collector Maker at Dunwood Drums, run together with Del Woods. At this time I was performing under the stage name of ‘Perpetuum Mobile, and the album was released as Perpetuum Mobile 1 IfSD, as a sideline to my main Venture as a Contemporary Artist. However, as a second album was recorded but left unfinished, [in the 2 futher Marehay sessions] my life’s focus was rapidly shifting to music and a break with Art was imminent. I then adopted 'a life in music' under my own name, and the PM albums twere aken up into my new system. now at my own Studio, the ‘Drum Studio’, as 'Drum music, Dm 1 & 2'.
