Here is this month’s Reader Submissions post, please share your work here during the month of April if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.
One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. The comments and upvotes do not go unnoticed! Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio!
1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.
2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.
3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.
4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
“Contact mics inside the broom head amplify the sounds of the bristles playing over the log. The bristles act like a needle on a record player, or keys on a music box. The song is determined by the density of texture on the surface of the rotating log.”

Another great submission to our Made of Imagination project with MTV.
Ryan Gregory made an 8 string guitar with hand made pickups, and thumb-pianos built from bicycle spokes, yard rakes, and other stuff. There’s also a suitcase kick drum and a foot powered hi-hat/tambourine/snare combo instrument. Love the performance at the end!

Love this submission to our project from Jeff Conley!
After having two vintage Gibson guitars stolen after a show he decided he would never buy another guitar. Instead he started to build acoustic and electric guitars out of old vintage suitcases! He has even built electric foot drums from the suitcases as well!
This song below is called “For Gibby” for his stolen guitar:
