FLUX | New Album & Crowdfunding Campaign

OUR NEXT PROJECT is ready! Well, almost. FLUX “on earth” still needs some work, time, effort and … funds. Which is why we are starting a crowdfunding campaign for our new album:

Please support our music AND add your little share of things that may not be much in the big picture – but possibly make the difference in making our planet a better place. Get a first taste with a 

FREE DOWNLOAD of one of our new songs: ENCOUNTER is ready on our websites for you. Check out the song or even play along with it, record a video and share it with us, your friends and the rest of the world! #fluxonearth

ON EARTH is the name of the game … or better say our new album. Which is why we also intend to help our planet by cooperating with a non-profit foundation helping with environmental, educational and cultural projects. Worldwide. Your support will help us to both get the album out AND make our planet a better place.

THE MUSIC in our new album has a lot of parallels and associations to planet earth. We have continued our progress as a band: Developing from WATER to FIRE to … EARTH! And there will also be 

PLAYALONG VERSIONS of each track: Minus drums, minus guitar, minus hammond organ. Plus charts to share with your buddies so you can duplicate the music of FLUX and be part of our band! Record a video and share it!

HELPING OUR PLANET is what we still want to do on top of all that. As artists we are dedicated to our obligation to think further and act instead of react. We at FLUX see ourselves as a part of the movement that is trying to do what is possible. It may still not be enough though – but at least we are acting using the reach we have as musicians.

JOIN US and support our project, give your playing a push AND help the planet!

THANK YOU! Paul | Claus | Thomas

DRUM CAMPS Summer 2019

I hope you are enjoying your summer and there’s enough space and time left for …. drumming of course 🙂 OPEN MINDED DRUMMING in Poland with DOM FAMULARO is already booked out since quite a while – but INTERNATIONAL DRUM CAMP in Oberreute/Germany still has some open slots/seats, just as DRUMMERS CAMP on the beautiful island of Sardinia. Please feel free to check more events this summer and fall and I hope we meet somewhere along the line! In the meantime check the shop here on the website to give your drumming yet another push! I am happy to sign any books, sticks and CD’s for you of course. Stay well! Claus

DRUMMING KINSHIP with ANIKA NILLES

“What did you teach Anika to make her the incredible player she is?” That actually is a very frequent question I am getting again and again … Based on these multiple requests, Anika and myself are now offering a special one or three-day educational package for your school/institute! Here’s some first short info, we look forward to putting this show on the road! Feel free to reach out to Anika or myself  for more info!

 

From George L. Stone to Joe Morello, Sanford Moeller to Jim Chapin, Joe Morello to Dom Famularo, Alan Dawson to Tony Williams, Gary Chaffee to Vinnie Colaiuta…  throughout the history of drumming there is an interesting parallel: Behind most influential drummers there is an influential teacher. With Anika and Claus there are the same bonds: With Claus being a master student of Jim Chapin and Dom Famularo and Anika being one of the most influential contemporary drumset artists of the 21st century. Want to know more what made Anika the drummer she is? And have a view behind her concepts? And find out about the connection to her teachers? To learn about your own path in music and drumming? Then this package is for you!

Contents:

  • Spend a day with Anika and Claus in a relaxed, educational, non competitive atmosphere.
  • Get first hand information from two knowledgable and internationally respected teachers and drumset artists.
  • Daily practicing routine workouts for pad and drumset: What is it you REALLY need to have down to reach the next level?
  • Hand and foot techniques: Reviewing the basics from Moeller to Stone to Gladstone and applying them to the drums in multiple ways.
  • Subdivision studies and groupings: How to create and use 21st century drumset applications.
  • Have a view behind Anika’s and Claus’s practicing and performing routines: See their strategies and learn how to apply them to your level, your settings, your skills.

More detailed information regarding contents and exercises on request. Thanks for reaching out to us, find more info with our websites and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter! We are looking forward to be working with you!

Anika & Claus
