The Box of Boom is a 7ft tall robotic drum-machine/boombox that plays analog beats via digital inputs. The boombox inspired cage holds two full drum sets and additional percussion instruments that are played by guests via an arcade button input console. The system is programmed via Arduino and allows for a variety of beats to be created by turning on and off various drums and sequences or freestyling your own beat samples. The installation was originally built for the Music Tastes Good Festival in Long Beach, CA in Sept. 2017. Also inside the machine is a oversized disco ball, LED sound reactive lights, fog machine, and at least one cowbell. The footprint of the machine is 4’x9′ and just requires basic 120v power.
