[the user] dot-matrix symphony

Recommended Posts

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.

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
