    so [the user] decided to make music.


    The Symphony for dot matrix printers is a work which transforms
    obsolete office technology into an instrument for musical performance.
    The Symphony focuses the listener's attention on a nearly forgotten
    technology: the dot-matrix printer. Specifically, it employs the noises
    the printers make as the sole sound source for a musical composition.
    Leaving the constituent elements untouched, the process imposes a new
    order upon them, reorganizing the sounds along a musical structure.


    becasue Nerds need to know !

    we used to have a newswire that fed directly into a dot matrix. The sound patterns it emitted were pretty cool. Sadly...it is now gone.

    it's wild to make music out of such noise.

    you reminded me of my crazy club days
    when after a night of raging
    practically any noise one heard, whether it be auto, bus, helicopter, engines, airplanes, etc. sounded like it fit a beat
