This new limited edition product features the signature of the legendary thrash metal Megadeth bassist David Ellefson combined with unique, original interactive music that David Ellefson created for his fans to experience using the Beamz. The collection of the original interactive songs is titled David Ellefson’s Beamz Metal Factory, and Ellefson created this music exclusively for Beamz.
“With Beamz, an artists’ fan doesn’t just listen to music, they interact with it and experience it by playing light," said Al Ingallinera, Jr., Vice President of Product Management for Beamz Interactive. “Interactive music via the Beamz provides artists unique opportunities to offer their fans dynamic music making experiences, regardless of experience with traditional music instruments. David Ellefson’s fans are going to be impressed with the creativity and fun they’ll have with the interactive songs included with this limited edition product.”
The Beamz Player is an innovative music product that enables people of all ages and skill levels to play music by passing their hands through four laser beams with up to 12 different music sounds, instruments and clips. Each Beamz interactive song is setup with a unique background rhythm track and each laser beam programmed to control different instruments, including guitars, bass, drums, etc. Consumers also have the option to capture and record copies of their interactive song performances for playback in any digital music player or to share copies with their family and friends.
“The Beamz Player and interactive music opens doors for people who wouldn’t ordinarily pursue playing an instrument,” said David Ellefson. “And with its simple learning curve, my fans may quickly enjoy playing with the interactive music I’ve made for them to experience by touching laser beams and playing light using the Beamz controller. It’s a great product that may be used by musicians and non-musicians alike.”
