Well we’re finally back and recovered after an amazing week at The Secret Garden Party! The Drum Machine was based in the kids field where we entertained and educated kids and adults alike with crazy noises and interactive fun.
We had some great feedback from parents, organisers and even a couple of teachers with regards how good The Drum Machine worked with young children. It was incredible to see how quickly they were able to interact and give creative input to the setup. For young children playing an instrument or the drums takes a huge amount of learning and time. But The Drum Machine allowed kids to be creative with music instantly. And that was just amazing to watch!
Check our Flickr page for photos of the event (more to follow) and see this how much fun this youngster was having literally ON the machine!
Glastonbury 2011 was the biggest and best The Drum Machine has ever been. The most significant upgrade being the inclusion of individual monitors on each console giving a visual representation of what you are playing and twiddling. Plus high spec audio speakers were in place to create the best interactive musical experience Glastonbury has to offer.
Check out this short video created using footage from Glastonbury. A full length Drum Machine promo is also in production. Watch this space!
The Drum Machine is now on Flickr. We love to see the machine in action so if you have any films or photos from any Drum Machine session please email them to us. We’ll get them online for others to see.
