One of Rossi’s more famous performances is of him performing a mind-bending drum solo piece in Amsterdam. The set lasts an exhausting thirteen minutes and Rossi can be seen sliding up and down his huge selection of scrap metal instruments. A large crowd gathers to see Rossi perform, encircling the performer and watching on as he builds to his crescendo.
The use of various scrap metals is an interesting concept, with each piece giving out a particular percussive note and the use of plastic drums as a form of bass. The set is a skilfully played one as Rossi’s kit is laid out in such a manner that he has to slide across the ground in order to play the furthest instruments.
