On this DVD, Neil Peart documents the work in progress of recording Rush's best-selling album TEST FOR ECHO as well as the work in progress of Neil himself and his endless apprenticeship to the art of drumming. On this history-making DVD, he uses the songs from TEST FOR ECHO to demonstrate concepts such as:
Constructing a drum part
Selecting rhythmic approaches
The drummer's role in a band
Drum set orchestration
A complete studio performance of each song is captured by four cameras as Neil lays down the fiery, creative drumming for which he is known, but with new finesse gained from two years of devotion to study and practice. Following each performance, Neil presents a specific analysis of the drum part's relation to other elements in the song, as well as breaking down and demonstrating key sections, fills, and solos. Booklets are included.
