Somewhere in this Universe, Somebody Hits Drum is guitarist YUVAL RON’s newest album, an will be released on Oct 3rd 2019 via his own label Wrong Notes Music.
The crew, featuring MARCO MINNEMANN (drummer for The Aristocrats, Jordan Rudess, Tony Levin, Steven Wilson and Joe Satriani to name a few), is taking off on a mission, to explore the vast musical universe, hence the album’s title and inspiration.
The album, which was over three years in the making, features six beautiful and profound compositions placing a strong emphasis on big, orchestral, film music-like arrangements and production. On top of those, the players give some virtuosic and passionate performances, soloing over the tunes while keeping their original intent. It leaves the listener fascinated throughout the extensive pieces, traveling through space with tunes like “Gravitational Lensing”, “The Discovery of Phoebe” and “I Believe in Astronauts”.

“The album is a combination of carefully thought out compositions with improvisations, and I just found myself listening and smiling, gently moving with the beat as I feel under its spell.”
