• The Beat Goes On

    Seventeen-year-old Aseem Mishra found a way to play drums without hauling a lot of bulky equipment & without having to sit on a tiny stool. He apparently carries a midi box in his backpack & drum pads under his clothing.

    Hi, Richard! Recently you wrote in a message to Ardith Hinton:

    I always wanted to do the drum triggers under clothing,
    i.e. the "drum suit" but never did that one. WAs
    considering it quite a bit when I was doing the midi
    enhanced one man band act back in the early '90's.
    I'd seen a guy do something similar before or just
    about the time the midi standard was developed, early
    '80's iirc on the Tonight show.

    Ah... so while this idea isn't new to you, it was apparently new to the BBC reporter(s). I should have guessed! In any case it might have some potential for folks with two working hands but rather limited mobility. :-)
