A kit that moves when you play it. Not out of place, or "off the riser" so to speak, but just naturally bounces and moves around when you play. You really get into a tune and everything is flowing from you to the kit, to the crowd dancing. I think it really brings things together.

Know what I mean?

I simply don't feel comfortable when my kit is moving... especialy when the bass drum or the hi hat moves away ;)
Rhytm is a way to transmit a description of experience
in an emotional and not abstract way.
It is more than a metaphor:
It is a physical experience as real as any other.

i like my kit to move, but not away from me. when i double bass solid 16ths my bass drum shakes back and forht pretty violently, along with my toms that are mounted to it. and i love it.

By allowing the drums to move (not from position) or bounce around it lets the sound be a bit more natral as the sound waves do not die like thay would from the solid mounts. imagin if you put your hand on a speaker while it was in use.
It's like stupid in stereo.

How would mounting that speaker on a wall affect the sound?

A slight bounce similar to Neil Pearts on the Anatomy of a drumsolo video.

depends on if the wall is hollow or solid. hollow would project the sound a bit solid would deaden it or do nothing.

BTW I ment directly on the cone
