Servitor reflects the living resurrected earth springing back through the decay of the
failed industrial machine of Detroit. The living, breathing, pulsing drums; the grinding,
rhythmic machine of industry.
Servitor combines live percussion with foundations in traditional West African, Afro Cuban,
Middle Eastern, Brazilian, and American tribal drums with a heavy, diverse and rich
background of grinding industrial programming. Servitor is a screaming, pulsing,
thundering, music experience that is a massive departure from the usual approach to rhythms
in electronic music.
Live Servitor’s unique setup and approach allows for performances along with a diverse
selection of other artists. Servitor has performed live with a myriad of dancers and has
played drums for other several other acts. Servitor’s music has been used for
fusion/bellydance performance tracks poi/fire performances and independent commercial
advertisements. The best way to get the live feel of Servitor’s drums in a dance/fire
performance is to bring Servitor and the drums on stage.
Followers- Servitor’s unique sound and heavy emphasis on drums has thundered through the
underworld to bring out the most unexpected, but entirely welcome cadre of dancers, artists
and misfits. Among the masses of Servitor dendrophants are the raq-ing, shimmy-ing belly
dancer, the vintage-teching steampunk, the boot-stomping rivethead, the drum circling skin
pounders, the footloose African dancer, Ren Faire geeks and SCA enthusiasts. The audience
of a Servitor show is always diverse and overflowing with creative, artistic minds. Its
impossible not to fit in.
