Play it Compy!

July 7, 2009

I’m listening to In Rainbows right now, and I just remembered how awesome James Houston’s video for “Big Ideas: Don’t Get Any” was. This video was his final project at the Glasgow School of Art’s Graphic Design program. He uses some printers, an 8-bit computer, and a bunch of hard drives to literally sing and perform the song. IT. IS. CRAZY! “I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there. It doesn’t sound great, as it’s not supposed to.” See more of James’ work here.
