Taiko drumming.

Maker Camp will make some noise today as we meet the taiko drummers of Wadaiko Newark  who will show us how to make a taiko drum using a classic oak barrel design, construction-site salvaged PVC, or a water barrel.

We’ll be joined by Sue Eustice, founding Member of Wadaiko Newark. Wadaiko Newark is a Taiko group formed in cooperation with the Newark Unified School District and serving the people in Alameda County in California.


Sound o’ Light speakers.

Today’s project is all about making music, too: the sound-o-light speakers. It’s a simple PVC pipe speaker system with surprisingly good sound.

Hear, and see, it all right here at 11am PST on Google+.
