it went into mixing...
10 years later:
New music was recorded to accompany existing drum tracks 1, 3, 4 & 5 - because rhythm is the key and it never stops, even when there is a solo

Harmonic Drumming
Since the previous century professional drummers were trying to invent new techniques and to develop hardware that would satisfy their need of musicality and would allow them to perform complete compositions containing not only rhythm, but also the Melody...

The big challenge of Harmonic Drumming:

Notes and Duration

"...Drum Set as an instrument does not produce any actual notes (Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, etc...). It also does not have an easy way to control the duration of the sounds it produces. That presents a big limitation in design for producing melodies.

But different sizes of drums do have a different pitch sounds. The pitch of different drums can be used to produce harmonic sounds and even a complete "melodies"!

- Still those Melodies will not contain any actual notes and because of that can not be performed in different Musical Keys but they will contain a good representation of the Harmonic Melody..."
