kickin teeth

While I was rehearsing for Novas Frequencias with the tooth/chomper instrument, I was moving a kick drum pedal and it struck me that it could be an useful addition to the instrument.  Currently it requires 3 performers, it would be great if it could also function as a solo instrument.  this video below isn’t really what i want but I love cardboard tech!

Following that, I’ve been researching possibilities for automation using motors with variable control. I would need to use an attachment/cam to make the  action go up and down instead of rotating.  I could attach an irregular shaped wheel/cog to the bottom of the handle, where the rubber band connects at the bottom and have that control the motion
