Foot Percussion

These are instruments that I play with my bare feet while my hands are occupied with a drum or two. Clockwise from left: Assunta's Tambourine, Hotel Desk Bell, Log Drum, Timepiece, Toe Rattle, Skull Knocker with Hell's Angels woodblock, Low-Hat Cymbals. Don't get me started, but since you have, the practice of playing with the feet is nothing new, people have been at it for millennia. This set-up evolved to fill a demand of sorts, in a similar way that the Drumset has: each element has its own sonic niche to inhabit, different than those a hand drum has, hence, a broader palette is achieved.
