Cold Pressed is set up as a modified drum set with timbral notation, meaning each instrument is assigned a pitch and arranged like a keyboard. If you read keyboard music well, learning the notation will be a piece of cake. Syncopation, contrasting timbres and rock-influenced style are blended together in music which is vivid, spicy and obsessively persistent.
