Servo powered drumming robot

So over the summer I'm testing a few ideas from my final university project and would like to make something like they have made in this video:

i thought it seemed simple enough however as i am new to all this, i am struggling to get a circuit together with a servo and 6v battery in it.

Also if anyone would help me with using Processing and Touchosc to trigger the servo that would be great!

The positive lead from the battery goes to the positive lead of the servo. The negative lead from the battery goes to the servo and to ground on the Arduino. The control wire of the servo goes to a digital pin on the Arduino.

It's a pretty simple circuit, really.

Then, use the Servo library, and some of the examples, to make the servo move.

Making it play a drum is a simple matter of using Servo.write() with the correct values, with the correct intervals between the Servo.write() calls.

OK, so it's not really simple.

What field of study?

I study Special Effects at the University of Hertfordshire. My page has a rather good selection of the stuff i have been working on:

The thing is i'd like to make this final project into a big sound installation and trying to learn the coding from no background in it is rather difficult which is why i am grateful for your reply and any others that i get! :D
