Silent Drum

This project is the work of Jaime Oliver in collaboration with percussionist Matthew Jenkins. Is basically a drum with a malleable surface at the top and a side-mounted camera.

The sort of “haunting industrial tune” that it plays is due to the analysis of the depressions and movement on its elastic surface. Those movements are tracked with the help of a video camera mounted on the side.

This instrument is open source.
