Here is a simple idea.
Sound Cluster Ostinato's,
Below is a paradidle between two toms
but played only with "one hand" it's a sound alike.
At a UK clinic I saw Marco MInnemann play this
patterrn and solo over it with his remaining
limbs.Good stuff...
(....hmmm remind me to give up drums tomorrow)



Above are a few other examples of the idea
Again you could mess around with this
type of idea forever

A few players can manage two sets of these at once and still keep track of it all ;eg (7/8 - 5/8 ) Mad stuff...
