Superbird progress.

I found a Fab Lab here in Jersey City last July. I had sets what needed building. So I built them.

Although shot in Chapman Productions in Allentown, I built these set pieces in Jersey City. I'm fairly proud of how nice this set looks. Gotta give a shout-out to my man Jiah for helping. Laura was in charge of lighting Kate Britton.
Anyway, we shot this and then we needed to shoot yet more. O ye gods. Well that meant even more work at the lab to make costumes. Lots of work on lasers and 3D printers. I learned much. We shot those rounds of reshoots at the Art Factory in Paterson which was also amazing.

Then I started building guitars at the Fab Lab because that was fun. Then doing other things and now I've been making drum synth enclosures. The basic design isn't me, and the electronics are way not me, but I took the pre-existing design that Damien made and altered things to jibe with the new pc boards.
The Superbird monophonic drum synth with onboard trigger and ability to control from an external trigger. Bassman head for scale. We made the Superbirds in different colors with acrylic tops and plywood front, back, sides, and bottom. 

And now they're at Moog Fest in both kit and assembled form.

Due to the proximity of the title and the first picture, I thought the first picture showed a Superbird in progress. The drum synth thingies are cool.
