AbstractWhilst digital drum kits have become ubiquitous across the performing and recording realms of the music industry over the past few years, research into extending real drum performance and sounds is still in its early stages. As digital drums have become more common on the world’s stages and recording studios, the way that sounds are triggered using piezo based triggers and the sounds themselves, generated from samples, has changed very little. This project looks at how acoustic drums and percussion can be augmented using physical models of acoustic instruments and how new performances and sounds can be created.
