Of those machines probably the best known and the most prominent one is the so-called B.A.M. (Batterie Acoustique Midi), a set of genuine drums played by a programmable electromagnetic process, that won the price of sound inventions in Paris in 2001. Their more "simple" stage-set includes the B.A.M., eight churchbells and a grand piano and is built around the well-known two-man performance "La Danse de la Terre". More extended sets include an additional giant metal cage in which a man takes place and is smashed against a large iron gong, but the most spectacular stage-set is called "The Iron Games" and needs almost 300 m of space to be set up. It includes a whole series of inventions, rat hurdy-gurdies, resonating cones, crane-actuated lyres, water clocks, bells and gongs of all sorts, dancers covered in sound sensors, gigantic double-basses and a lot more.
