Philip Vermeulen on The Wire

Philip Vermeulen and “The Boem Boem” physical rhythm machine was featured in The Wire magazine.

“For Vermeulen, the physically charged environment created by his Boem Boem machine is a means of breaking through the passivity of the audience and placing people in a state of high alert. The machine itself becomes a puzzle to work through even as its infectious rhythms spur the body to movement.”
