TRAVIS BARKER PROJECT
Designing for One of the Best Drummers of All Time
Travis Barker is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer, best known as the drummer for the rock band Blink-182. Barker has also performed as a frequent collaborator with hip hop artists, is a member of the rap rock group Transplants, founded the rock bands +44 and Box Car Racer, and most recently joined Antemasque and Goldfinger. He was a frequent collaborator with the now-late DJ AM, and together they formed TRAV$DJAM. Due to his fame, Rolling Stone referred to him as “punk’s first superstar drummer” as well as one of the 100 Greatest Drummers of All Time.
When one of the best drummers of all time calls needing some amazing audio for his Southern California home we aimed to deliver! Along with HTS Systems, we custom engineered three rooms (Theater, Gym, and Master Bedroom) of amazing audio to satisfy his audio playback needs. The theater acoustics, room design, and couches are by Cinema Tech. For more information on this project check out htssystems.com.
