I’m a big fan of hacking things you already have into things you don’t.
Who’d have thought a clever musician could not just transport his drum set via a bicycle, but use the bicycle itself as the drum set?!
Who is he? He is David Osborne, aka Puncture Kit.
[Dramatic pause while you revel in the awesomeness of that name.]
Puncture Kit was brought to life after sitting in London’s Green Park with my new bicycle not long after arriving from Australia in June 2008… no car, no drums, and a need to create beats. With my bike turned upside down, a sketchbook and no desire to be carrying a drum kit around on buses and trains, I designed my bike as my transport and drum kit.
Sticky notes. Paper clips. Bike drum sets. All things created by people who were just simply trying to find a way over a roadblock in their path to a simpler life.
Check out some of Puncture Kit’s mad beats in the following videos. (Unless you want to see David set up his bike drum set rig, skip to about 1:10 in the first video.)
