Company Nomad Men: La Batt Mobile

A unique concept: two drummers play on the same drum set welded on a stylized tricycle designed and manufactured entirely in our workshop. Be careful, it turns ;)
La Batt Mobile With a few strokes of the crank, the drum module rises in the air at 45°, the two musicians playing face to face with unbridled energy, end up pulling the pin out of the module and then the drums start to turn faster and faster.

All we wish for is to share our passion of rhythm and metallic construction with the world, to show that if you put your heart into something, anything is possible.
The Nomad Men and their Batt Mobile mix visual and musical wonder to the delight of the public eager of novelties.
We want people to enjoy themselves, we want to surprise them, see them smile and dance, we want our music to trigger emotions in them. Our music is constantly evolving and our drums are tuned with love.
Music is a universal language to which there are no boundaries; people understand each others and communicate through their body rhythm and mind escape.

Our show is based on improvisation and interaction with the public! We are connected to each others when we play, whether it is percussive or catchy rhythms, at an energic or sustained pace, diversified styles with a strong focus on the street show performance to the way we play music.


Side story We were in the train between Marseille and Paris when we drew this machine, a piece of paper and two pens then we could already project ourselves with La Batt Mobile ;) This drawing is online on our website .
It's a challenge that we threw ourselves to make it, saying "come on, let's go ...."

Quentin NOMAD Prysbyla : La Batt Mobile, L'Ethno Machine and La Boom Machine
The maker Quentin NOMAD Prysbyla
Designer and creator of steel furniture, then interior decorator, my career also includes events, a revelation in the ephemeral art and live performance.

Music, vibrations, rhythms and the creation of steel sculptures form a passion, which has since taken the name of Nomad Men.

It is a chance to have found this balance in this job of art director, musician and creator of machines. The aesthetics of the machines are very important to us as well as the vibrations of our percussions. The sharing and communication of this passion with the public is absolutely fabulous, the humanity and the energy that we receive are engines to continue to create more and more incredible machines in order to stage them in our shows.
Straight out of the imaginarium of artists Quentin Prysbyla and Alexis Pinheiro. "No mad! No we are not mad, rather nomads in the soul. Passionate about creation, innovation, rhythm and travel!" The recipe: imagination, design, manufacturing, salvage objects, DIY, elbow grease, music, wild rhythm, bucolic scenography... ! "We constantly have new ideas to make our machines evolve, they are eco-responsible constructions which mix a mechanical universe and a poetic touch.

Rusty steel fabrications topped with lace.

Machines high in poetry, with mixtures of materials, mixtures of cultures.

Looking like old tractors, old machines or insects, they evoke a fantastic universe straight out of comic books or science fiction movies.

A subtle mix of rusted steel, lace, colors and grandma's lamps give them all their charm and plunge us into the memory of the interiors of yesteryear.

These unusual pedal machines are born in the company's workshop and come to life before the eyes of the public during our performances around the world.
