Music technologist and producer Jay Harrison built this machine he calls an Electromechanical Lithophone. It uses a series of servos and hammers to strike metal plates and play music. Sit back and enjoy as it performs Paul Simon’s You Can Call Me Al, along with ELO’s Mr. Blue Sky.
Awesome Paul Simon
Coldplay lead vocalist Chris Martin dropped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and turned in a wonderful cover version of Paul Simon’s award winning 1986 track Graceland, complete with the African backing vocals and rhythms that made it work so well, and a bonus horn section.
