Oliver Wilshen and Niall Quinn aka Signal-to-Noise modded an old Roland DXY pen plotter, covering its bed with strips of magnetic tape, and replacing its pen with a playback head. The result – a strange device that can play back bits of audio based on x/y coordinates.
Drummer David Dockery synced up his rhythms to match the dialogue from Charlie’s Pepe Silvia meltdown on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It’d be cool if he did a live performance like this with scenes from a bunch of TV shows and movies playing on a big screen.
