2nd Line is an interactive percussion unit, which allows for full integration of dance and music. A musician can dance any percussion sound and/ or rhythmic ensemble; Conversely a dancer the same. 2nd Line is the 8th generational form of Bucussion, an invention of Steve Buchanan, who designed both instrument and accompanying techniques.The present design is capable of any percussion sound: battery, conga, tabla, tympani, gongs, etc. As well it is of course compatible with all present tech mediums, and can be used with any interface visual as well as sonor. A prime example presently being the use of programmable LEDs. Although the sounds are represented by digital means, no simple drum sequences, or just push a button sample work are utilized as primary expression.
As the artist states: 'I love to dance, and that means work and sweat!'
