Here is something my friend Sebastian sent me a few months go.
This project was James Hudson's thesis for the Glasgow School of Arts graphic design course.
He did it for Radiohead's Nude remix contest earlier this year, but didn't finish by the deadline. It is still awesome. Watch. It starts up about a minute in.
Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Guitars (rhythm & lead)
Epson LX-81 Dot Matrix Printer - Drums
HP Scanjet 3c - Bass Guitar
Hard Drive array - Act as a collection of bad speakers - Vocals & FX
Check his Vimeo page on it for his word on the project here.
I thought "Nude" was already an incredibly layered and intricately structured composition as it is. Seeing a few old machine parts perform the song blew my little geeky mind. I doubt it was recorded in sync with the footage, but it's still awesome.
If this got you in the Radiohead mood, check out this LA based a capella group, Sonos. They have a cool cover of "Everything in it's Right Place" on their myspace. They are playing live Dec. 20th at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. 21+ if you are interested. I'm not.
Hope this was fun.
