Introduction: Pulling the Drummer Out From Behind the Bandstand

I'll post soon. Just found you folks!
I have a variety of trike bikes that are musical sculptures/tone generating devices.
My constant companion is called The Rhythmic Transformation Station and it truly transformed my life. I'd like to pass that along somehow....

I remember this bike form my time at the peak bike shop in Olympia. Seems I remember you were asking Eric to help you weld a few parts together. Glad to see it all worked out and your enjoying the ride!

is 4 years long enough?

hmmmmmm, not so soon, but so really cool. It gives food for thought even in this form. Please come back with some instructions.

Um...? More. Any details to share yet?

Not so soon afterall. That's a shame. It looks like a great project.

It looks like some rototoms but is there a snare drum?

Put more on please... This looks like a cool one... Is the rest of the band following ?

Actually, not in this shot. But we had a Trike Tryst at Burning Man 2004 and there was a spontaneous musical outpouring. Of course, anywhere you go with this thing there's a musical/percussive outpouring. It's the funnest thing I've ever ridden. The smiles on people's faces is worth everything.

Forgot to mention, that this drum trike is part of a much larger concept to pull trap sets out from behind the bandstand. I'm envisioning a whole percussive orchestra on wheels. I'm pretty involved with street/festival percussion with parades (Seattle's Fremont Parade), processions (Olympia Procession of the Species), and festivals (Burning Man, FolkLife, World Rhythm Fest).....and would love to have a full-on, melodic percussion orchestra. This is partially inspired by a Trimpin performance years back with MIDI-bikes and partially inspired by the original Spike Jones piano on a bike.
