Movement Systems Drum Computer

The Movement Drum System I/II (generally referred to as the Movement MCS Percussion Computer) is a very rare British-made drum machine produced approximately between 1981 (MKI) and 1983 (MKII). Around 10 MKI were built and 50 MKII. The Movement was exceptionaly futuristic for its time. The Movement was famously used by Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics) on "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)"
