Press Release (ePRNews.com) - New York, NY - Jul 28, 2016 - Pro percussionists including drummers for Dr. Dre, Herbie Hancock, Lauryn Hill, Madonna, Jill Scott, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Chick Corea, John Legend, Son Lux, Chairlift and The Flaming Lips are already buzzing about the hardware/software system that bridges the gap between digital’s vast sonic palette and living, breathing human musicianship.
After raising over $94k in a successful Kickstarter campaign last August, Sunhouse has begun shipping Sensory Percussion to its campaign backers around the world. Sensory Percussion is available now to purchase on the Sunhouse website. A selection of some of the best drummers today are already using it on stage and in the studio.
“Sensory Percussion is the freshest, most creative technology to hit electronic drumming in the last decade. With one drum I can now do what I can do with an entire kit” – Trevor Lawrence Jr., Grammy-winning producer and drummer for Dr. Dre, Herbie Hancock and Stevie wonder
Sunhouse’s innovative technology is built from the musician’s perspective and aims not only to reinvigorate drumming as an art form, but also to bring new life to the stage and the studio alike. This is the future of music tech, where the artistry and skill of instrumentalists meets pioneering technology. Sunhouse is creating that future.
Sensory Percussion turns the surface of any drum into an expressive digital music controller, allowing drummers to play unlimited sounds and effects while preserving all the human nuances of a live performance. It’s the first electronic percussion instrument to give drummers this level of control. Sensory Percussion extends acoustic drums into the realm of DJs, electronic beat makers and music producers.
With a small, easy-to-attach sensor that communicates with Sunhouse’s proprietary software, Sensory Percussion enables the control of multiple sounds from a single drum. But what makes this system truly revolutionary is that it also allows the musician to play “between” sounds and to control continuous effects based on where the drum is hit, allowing creative possibilities that are orders of magnitude beyond any competing product.
This is done by analyzing the rich acoustics of real drums through advanced digital signal processing and machine learning techniques. Each strike of a drum produces a unique sound and Sensory Percussion’s software is trained to understand and interpret these sounds allowing the drummer to control any electronic process (like sounds or lights) he or she wants.
Sensory Percussion is available now to buy on the Sunhouse website (http://sunhou.se) and is shipping globally:
Starter kit (software and 1 sensor): $700
Duo (software and 2 sensors): $1,025
Trio (software and 3 sensors: $1,315
Complete Kit (software and 4 sensors): $1,575
