Check out these awesome automatic drums, they can play better than I can.
I would like to see this developed into a FULL drumming machine with FULL drum sets.
Troy Rogers, Steven Kemper and Scott Barton compose for their mechanized instruments with the goal of exploring new “temporal, timbral, dynamic and harmonic possibilities.” The result sounds like no humans we’ve ever heard. These Ph.D. students built the instruments on their own dime, constructing Madi for a mere $200 in materials. We are a group of composers seeking new modes of acoustic sound generation. Our goal is to develop and compose for instruments that maximize temporal, timbral, dynamic, and harmonic possibilities. This quest has led us to create robotic musical instruments.
