Chiminyo - I Am Chiminyo LPGearbox Records (UK)
Tim Doyle is a drummer and percussionist for a host of vital acts from the current London Jazz scene (Maisha, Theon Cross). Chiminyo is his electronic solo project, and after a year on the club and festival circuit in the UK, Gearbox are excited to launch his debut release. Chiminyo introduces a novel process to his music making. Live drums and electronics are nothing new, but Chiminyo’s self-designed, selfcoded software allows him to trigger samples and manipulate the electronics as he plays. This creates fascinating opportunities for collaborators, and also makes each performance unique.
