Brother 'Printer Orchestra' by Chris Cairns

While some would throw away their old computer junk, Chris Cairns went on a rummage expedition to assemble a motley bunch of retired electronics, re-wiring them to build a huge MIDI orchestra, with programming by Is This Good? ( Who needs post-production effects when you can reverse-engineer photocopiers, modems, scanners, fax machines and hard drives to simulate rhythms and tones that together play a very apt rendition of Dylan's 'The Times They Are A-Changin' for real?
