Control Electronic Instruments with Acoustic Drum Kits

Sensory Percussion by Sunhouse is a new technology that takes the expressive nature of drumming and allows you to control electronic instruments with precision.

Sensory Percussion uses sensors and computer software to listen and react to your playing so that it can “capture the essence of your playing” and emulate your technique through multiple, mappable sounds from samples and synthesizers to digital audio effects.

As more and more musicians are experimenting and working with electronic music Sensory Percussion could be the tool to streamline this for drummers, opening up new realms of possibility using your kit.

Watch the Sensory Percussion in action in the video below featuring some brilliant drummers – Kiran Gandhi (M.I.A.), Ian Chang (Son Lux), Matt Duckworth and Nicholas Ley (The Flaming Lips), Joe Stickney (Autre Ne Veut) and Sterling Campbell (David Bowie, The B-52s, Duran Duran, Cyndi Lauper, David Byrne, Tina Turner).

Sensory Percussion is currently on Kickstarter to gain funding and giving you the chance to purchase the sensors early at a reduced price! If you want to pledge you can from here: https://goo.gl/huaFA6
