Watching a talented drummer beat away on a set of skins is an eternal joy, but even more so when said drummer is sitting in the middle of a long-exposure camera rig with a pair of glowing drumsticks in hand. What's usually a blur of arms and sticks suddenly becomes an intricate web of mid-air streaks and squiggles that highlight the drummer's performance.
Whiskey-maker Ballentine paid for this awesome setup, and hired drummer Ben Mead to do his thing while technicians captured his performance. The 360-degree Matrix-like footage of him drumming is neat, but even his live performances with the sticks moving at full speed are impossible not to stare at in awe.
