icing on the Polish Fest – Adam’s SPACE DRUM

In the evening on Day 3 of this year’s Polish Festival, the dissipating crowd was given a special treat — Adam’s improvisation on space drum. A film maker whose hobby is to play music — guitar, and now spacedrum

If you’re wondering what that is and what it sounds like, think:

    • uplifitng
    • mystical
    • vast
    • polyphonic

Until you get to talk to Adam, listen to somewhat of a lookalike of his 🙂

More on the design and history of space drums (a close relative, the Hang, originated in Switzerland, 2000)

The Spacedrum® belongs to the Trinidad steeldrum and Hang family (the Hang is made in Switzerland by Panart® and has been distributed by Djoliba during 5 years). It’s a french designed melodic metal percussion. Philippe Maignaut & Djoliba are designers with trademark and patent filed. In october 2011 they have created together a company called Metal Sounds dedicated to the making of metal melodic percussions.

Thanks to these three sizes the Spacedrum is available in pentatonic, diatonic and even chromatic ranges. It is also the first instrument of its kind to propose a complete chromatic scale (13 notes) which permit to play all styles of music in any key.
