Michael writes – “Hey guys, I’m a MAKE subscriber and big fan of the zine. I just exhibited my new project “Beat-Bike” at Daley Plaza in Chicago as part of Chicago Artists Month. The Beat-Bike is a bicycle-activated drum machine. Magntes and magnetic switches mounted on the bike activate a series of electronic drum sounds, and there are controls to change the sequence as you ride. the faster you go, the higher the tempo. I’ve got a slightly more in-depth description, pictures, and a video up at the site…”Link.
