Omar Rodriquez Lopez - The Expert Experimentalist

Omar Rodriguez Lopez has been an eccentric presence in the guitar world since his days with Sparta.  He gained more notoriety through the bombastic and outlandish project he created with Cedric Bixler-Zavala, called The Mars Volta.  In this video, he creates an array of atmospheres that are punctuated by Deantoni Parks' drumming, and beautified by the female singer (name unknown).  The dynamics created by Deantoni are unlike anything we've ever seen from a drummer--truly pushing boundaries for the number of sounds a drummer can create.
