I've been babysitting Byeong Sam Jeon's telematic drum circle telematicdrumcircle.net/ back here in Troy, NY while it's exhibited in Singapore at SIGGRAPH Asia 2008.

I got a little bored with re-aligning switches for the pneumatics and resetting various modules, so I dug through Byeong Sam's code. Since it was just 16 serial ports, each at 9600 baud receiving characters '1' through '9' for velocity, I wrote a Processing app to translate MIDI notes to control the drums.

So now I can control them with my Trigger Finger, or using sequenced rhythms in Live.
