MIDI drum pants brings the noise, from your pants

Tyler Freeman, also known as odbol, is a musician/artist and has designed a pair of drum machine pants. The pants are loaded up with patches and connected to a small, external MIDI controller that produces a different drum noise when tapped with the hand. Odbol can produce some decent beats and even put on a show after hooking up the MIDI controller to a beat-looping machine. He does deserve props for being willing to slap himself all over the pants area — he's a bigger man than I.

When wearing and playing the pants, "odbol" considers himself a cyborg musician whose body assumes the role of the player and the instrument and allows for "spontaneous electric hambone solos." Cyborg? How about a broke artist/musician? Follow the link below to see the drum pants in action.
