David Ross

drummer

David Ross taught himself to play drum kit the wrong way round in his teens, playing with guitarist Matt Deighton. He soon found a path to free improvisation, inspired by Ornette Coleman records, watching maestro Roger Turner and talking to Keith Rowe about Steely Dan. He has since explored a multi-instrumentalist approach in his duo with Clive Bell, resulting in Metier Jazz release, Mystery lights/Nightflower, latterly moving into live electronics through involvement with Grutronic. David is currently working on music for two smoke alarms, and a piece theoretically for installation on the London Eye. He has been drummer in London instrumental combo Kenny Process Team for 18 years.
