Reel to Reel: Masters of Resonance

Featuring a Post-Screening Conversation with Jeremy Bout, John Good, and Paul Wertico from the Pat Metheny Group

A journey from the Forest, to the Stage...

Stars collide as John Good (known as the 'Wood Whisperer') crafts one of the most epic drum-sets of all time: The R40 played by Neil Peart on their final tour, made from a Romanian Bog Oak that is over 1500 years old!

Through the eyes of some of the world’s most inspirational drummers (Neil Peart, John “JR” Robinson, Duncan Phillips, Tommy Clufetos, Blair Sinta, Cobus Potgieter, Mona Tavakoli, Paul Wertico and many more) we peel back the curtain on the art of drum-making. Experience the interplay between Maker and Artist that blends the science and passion into crafting one of the world’s most powerful instruments. Retrace the footsteps of humble beginnings for DW drums with Jeremy Bout (Edge Factor), that ultimately lead to the pivotal discovery that revolutionized the world of drumming forever!

An inspirational journey of failure turned into success; where death gives birth to new life, and the world's greatest dreamers step into destiny to take their place along the “Masters of Resonance.” Please join us for this special screening followed by a conversation with Jeremy, John, and drummer Paul Wertico, moderated by GRAMMY Museum Artistic Director Scott Goldman.
