Pearl meets purl

“Pearl” is a company that makes drums and percussion instruments.

“Purl” is a knitting term that I have learned from my wife who knits.
By being married to a knitter, a person picks up the lingo here and there.

Corey Fogel is a drummer with a Bachelors in Music and who also has a Master of Fine Arts in Integrated Media/Music.
Corel Fogel is also a knitter.
As a drummer and a knitter he has joined the two together in “Purl Drums.”

Fogel shares: “Purl Drums is an experiment intersecting my two favorite activities: drumming and knitting. The point of intersection is the implements. I try to keep each craft as authentic as possible, with few creative leanings towards either. The result was a mutual crippling of my knitting and drumming form and technique.”

As Fogel said regarding mixing drums and knitting together: “The result was a mutual crippling of my knitting and drumming form and technique.” You can see/hear an example of his drumming and percussion skills here.

PS: For whatever it is worth, Pearl is also the name of a pet chicken that we used to have; but that is a different story for another time.
