NAME: Printer Orchestra
DESCRIPTION: A MIDI orchestra made from 97 old Brother machines. The photocopiers, printers, fax machines and modems were reverse engineered to produce delicate beeps which all together compose Bob Dylan’s The Times They Are A-Changin’. The controller can perform any MIDI arrangements and can even perform live.
AMUSEMENT RATE: It is always a nice surprise to hear the delightful noise of an old 56k modem, especially when it plays Bob Dylan. Brother chose to look back on its history to celebrate its future, a brand new range of printers. It might seems like an odd idea but the result is definitely looking forward. The times might be changing but with ideas like this one, it is for the better.
