Motorized percussion

Hey. Who wants to make simple percussive pieces with me? I’d like to make one unit that we can easily replicate so as to have multiple drums going at once. Simple unit consists of:

  • box (cardboard for protos)
  • dc motor (i have tons)
  • motor mount (i have tons)
  • motor coupler
  • lightweight mallet

Here’s the link to simple (not programmed) percussion pieces: https://vimeo.com/zimoun

Here’s a link to something much more complex both mechanically and programatically (rw?): http://felixsmachines.com/

And a link to my trello board on percussive experiments: https://trello.com/b/ul9i1IjL
