How Musician Develops Artistic Style - Conrad Doucette

In Chapter 10 of 21 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, musician and Takka Takka drummer Conrad Doucette answers "As a Musician, How Have You Grown into Having Your Own Artistic Style?"  Noting how the experience differs from artist to artist, Doucette defines it as getting to a point where he understands how to play with a group of people.  Writing music with this band, Takka Takka, Doucette alters his drum routine, experimenting with back beat sounds and rhythms, putting in the preparation that ultimately becomes useful in recording sessions.  Doucette is the drummer for the Brooklyn-based band Takka Takka.  He also performs with The National, Okkervil River, and Alina Simone.  When not performing, Doucette works as a copywriter, blogger, and digital media producer.  He has worked at Blender, Fuse TV, and  Doucette earned his BA in History from the University of Michigan.
