Stewart Copeland's Inspiration - 12" Signature Combo Crisp Hi-Hat «The Rhythmatist»


Stewart Copeland Paist - 12

Stewart Copeland achieved international fame as member of British New Wave icon The Police. On one hand chart hits like «Roxanne», «So Lonely» or «Every Breath You Take» delighted the fans. On the other hand Copeland’s unorthodox style of accompanying these songs influenced generations of drummers. At present he works as composer of sound tracks, ballet, opera and orchestral music.
Stewart Copeland teamed up with Paiste Sound Development to design a dynamic hi-hat small enough for fine articulation, yet crisp enough to cut through at all volume levels. The result is the 12" Signature Combo Crisp Hi-Hat «The Rhythmatist».

Paiste uses different alloys for the top and bottom cymbals. The CuSn20 Bronze top is responsible for warmth and fullness, while the Signature Bronze bottom provides brilliance and precision. Played closed the hi-hat produces a rather dry, crisp sound. The chick sound is full and razor-sharp. Thus the Compo Crisp Hi-Hat is well suited for drummers who want to emulate Stewart’s subtle, nuanced style, or as a powerful auxiliary hi-hat.

Signatures are entirely made by hand from the originally used Signature bronze in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.

Ben Hur back in the arena with CSO

Stewart Copeland composed an original score to MGM's 1925 epic silent film Ben Hur: A Tale of the Christ.

Conducted by Richard Kauffman, The Chicago Symphony Orchestra performed the score accompanying the 90 minute version of the MGM's film, prepared by Copeland, to a packed house. Stewart played drum kit and percussions with the orchestra. 

The CSO hosted a preconcert lecture with Richard and Stewart. They have collaborated before and the warmth of their friendship and mutual admiration was apparent. Amongst the many laughs and jokes, an audience member asked the difference between this and playing drums in a rock band, Stewart said he plays quieter with the orchestra while Richard whimsically mimed a 'heck-no' nod behind Stewart's back. I suppose it is all a matter of perspective.

As a long-time fan of Stewart's work, both with The Police and in his post-rock star musical career, it was an honor to photograph him. His musical depth is awe inspiring, his compositions uniquely original with his signature sound and his personality is infectious. Combined with our world-class symphony orchestra, it was a night to always remember. 

Special thanks to Eileen Chambers of the CSO for her helpful coordination and hospitality. Lisa Torem's interview with Stewart forthcoming.
