The Drum buddy

Liane writes –

Just wanted to give you a heads-up if you don’t already know… My favorite contemporary musical invention is going back into production! Mr. Quintron will be making ten more Drum Buddies after Laurie Anderson herself placed an order for one. The Drum Buddy is a unique percussion synthesizer made with oscillators, photoresistors, a light, a motor and a perforated number 10 can. Most of the Drum Buddies to be are already spoken for, but a few will be available for sale on eBay and Fresh Kills in Williamsburg.

  1. But what does it actually do? Is it an analog drum machine with the individual sounds being triggered by light falling through holes in a cam?
