THE COLLABORATORY OUTDOOR MUSIC DECK
Transform. Perform. Inform.
The Collaboratory Outdoor Music Deck is the ideal mobile tool for providing unique, customizable experiences to those who are both ambitious & curious about musical composition in do-it-yourself settings. TERRELL X pilots TCOMD to the scene as a trailer, then unfolds it to transform average social gatherings into events that promote collaboration, skills development & sound-driven fun for everyone!
Inspired by the 1984 Transformers cartoon technology of Optimus Prime’s semi-truck trailer (which unfolded to reveal the “Combat Deck” battle station), TCOMD is a rugged, raw, sturdy, steel platform that holds a portable sound system. This space invites attendees to take the stage and explore the art of creating music on the spot, from scratch…With or without traditional instrumentation.
A typical event with TCOMD involves participants watching TERRELL X deliver an interactive live performance, with guitar & vocal effects pedals, that doubles as a tutorial on Human Beat Boxing & how to turn their bodies into instruments. A no-judgment environment holds participant’s attention – while breaking down barriers of apprehension and stage fright. Participants leave with complimentary TCOMD-branded hand instruments & further encouragement to pursue using the human body to compose music.
