Jell-O, 5.5”x14” Ludwig Snare Drum, Drum Throne, Contact Microphones, Speaker Wire, Electronics.
During my residency, I created an instrument tactile and bizarre enough to draw peoples attention and encourage them to play with it. By casting a standard-sized snare drum and molding it with Jell-O, I was able to create a standalone 'Jell-O drum' that could be amplified simply by plugging he cables into a sound system.
