Bill Stewart on cymbal technique

Here's a nice video of part of an interview with Bill Stewart, speaking with Quincy Davis of the University of Manitoba, in which he discusses his cymbal technique. It relates to my earlier ranting and raving about technique in that the conversation is entirely about sound— nothing about speed or high performance in here anywhere. Nothing about technique in the abstract. It's all about getting a sound he seeking from a cymbal he was using at the time.

The rest of the interview is great, too.
