Ed will play whatever musical instrument you put in front of him and generally focuses on the sound of the instrument rather than his technique. It's not unusual for a Fathers of Morning song to be created just for the sound of a kick drum or to try out a new microphone. When Ed started out playing drums in bands, he was the one who made all the recordings using his 4-track. He sees the mixing board, mics and the whole recording process as just another musical instrument. Even just random sounds and noise that exist in the environment make it onto the recordings. Anything that makes or alters audio waveforms is going to catch his interest. Ed really just likes the way things sound.
