Mr. Todd CampbellTodd received received his formal training in Recording Engineering and Production at Omega Studios, studying with Bob Yesbek and Billy Brady. He received his training in classical percussion at West Virginia University, studying with Phil Faini, Dave Satterfield, and Tim Peterman. While at WVU in the mid 90’s, Todd took lessons in electronic music and FM synthesis with Gil Trythall – lessons and experiences that still inform his music and production today. In 2008, Todd embarked on a quest to release ten solo album-length recordings in ten years. Six years and six releases later, Todd is finding an innovative and critically-acclaimed compositional voice utilizing the recording studio as an instrument and incorporating electro-acoustic percussion, guitar, and hardware synths and effects, combined with many years spent as a touring rock drummer.
John Collinge of Progression Magazine rated Campbell’s 2010 release “Translation” 12 out of 12 stars, observing that Todd’s “prolific and complex contributions on drums, cymbals and percussion lend depth and resonance to his incredible array of electronic applications,” creating “uncharted forays into sonic alchemy that probably surprised their creator as much as the listener.” John Patrick reviewed Todd’s 2011 release “Pathology,” noting that he “sounds like Sandy Nelson, Mitch Mitchell, and Art Blakey touring Sandoz laboratory, imbibing the product, then being turned loose in a studio full of synthesizers, plus acoustic and triggered percussion!” Todd’s solo performances invite you to experience a predictably unpredictable foray into a sonic bricolage, incorporating masterful drumming and avant-whacked synth wizardry that holds a curious treat somewhere in the depths.
