Artur Jorge

''To me, the drums act as extensions of my body and are the centerpiece of all emotional comunication. With SONOR drums, all that comunication is enhanced with detail, precision, quality and finesse in every aspect. The tone and the look are both beautiful. On top of that, they work perfectly either inside the confined walls of a studio room as well as out there in the "wilderness" of the performing stage.''

Biography

I'm a balanced and experienced musician. I'm faithful to my personal sonic signature but I also like alternative choices and experimentation, always between the creative and the practical sides of the instrument.

My approach to drums is also a reflection of my universe of influences and I try to combine into the same drum kit the groove-oriented rhythmic patterns inspired by Neil Peart (Rush), Simon Phillips and Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree) mixed with the dynamic style of "double-bass" grooves from Mikkey Dee (Motorhead) and Alex Van Halen.

A self-taught drummer since I was 16 years old, I’m constantly aimed at getting better throughout my career. Hopefully, that’s reflected in all the music I play, which is constantly evolving.
