One of our top 8 finalists! Rick Feds is one of the greatest finger-drummers in the world today and has been included in Ableton's Top 5 Push performers list twice. He is a performer, music producer, Fulbright scholar,
TED speaker, Ableton, Arturia and Pearl Drums artist that experiments with technology to further extend the reach of a performer controlling more than one surface at once. The former classical piano and jazz drums background makes a key difference in Rick's finger-drumming technique and he strives to be an ambassador of a new art form. Rick Feds has done solo shows at venues like The Cutting Room (NYC), Rockwood Music Hall (NYC), South by South West (Austin, TX), to name a few. Watch out for the finals on 21th of August ✌️🥳🙏🔥 #fingerdrumming #mpclive #beats #beatmaker #livebeats #fingerdrummer #lofibeat #producerjam #maschinemk3 #maschinemikro #launchpad #abletonpush #push2 #novation #samplemusicfestival #mymaschine #maschinemk3 #wearenovation fingerdrum #trap #boombap #16pads
