Desk as a drum....as inspired by Martin O'Donnell.
Have you ever banged on something with a rhythm and realized that it sounds good? I play a drum. Not drums. Just one.
I was just listening to Peril by Martin O'Donnell from the Halo 2 soundtrack (yeah, I got the mp3). It's full of rhythm and strings and generally sounds great! I suddenly found myself bangin' away on my desk. I have this hollow-core desk from Ikea with great acoustics and it sounded pretty dang good!
