Drummer and engineer Aseem Mishra prized for 'drum kit jeans'
Artist biography Aseem Mishra
Aseem Mishra, who has been drumming since the age of nine, is also an engineering student at the University of Hull. Tired of lugging around his drum kit for each gig, Aseem Mishra invented the 'drum jeans', basically integrating eight sensors woven into the fabric of an otherwise ordinary set of trousers. Aseem's invention brought him the title at the Young Engineer of Great Britain Competition.
the previous year, in 2010, Aseem Mishra won the first prize as well for a set of drums that light up when hit.
