The Human-machine Integrated Drumming
STAMPER enables drummers to generate innovative performances by controlling multiple bass drums. STAMPER consists of several “Actuated Pedals (APs),” bass drum pedals embedded with an EC motor, paired with bass drums, and a machine vision system. The APs are used both as input and output. One AP in input mode senses the position of the pedal being used by the drummer. Other APs in actuated mode respond to the input mode AP’s motion. Machine vision is used to monitor the drummer’s movements to control the behavior of the actuated mode APs.
