Hi all, I’m very proud to present here my cover of the drum solo section from the Yes song ‘Ritual (Nous Sommes Du Soleil)’, originally played by Alan White. My aim for this was to capture the spirit of the live versions of the song while also adding some of my own little twists. I was also very lucky to have access to some dramatic lighting and smoke effects which I think worked out well. It’s bombastic and over-the-top, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I’m incredibly fortunate that Prog Magazine decided to publish an article on the video which can be found here (video link in article!)

Great work on this Robin!
I must give a big shout out to your band Kyros ..... excellent material and well worth looking out for if your musical tastes favour Prog.

Too bad you didn't think to paint or wrap the drum sticks in some glow in the dark material for those darker segments.  Maybe an idea for next time(?).

I did share a direct link in my 2nd post, it just wouldn't show the vid window for some reason - only the link.

Ah yes, common problem.  You have to wrap the link text in [media ][/media ] tags.  Also have to use http instead of https.  The forum software isn't the best.
