One of the great things about msuic technology is that it is constantly evolving, and people are always finding new and innovative ways to use it. In this case, extremely innovative. In this video, musician Giuseppe Acito of Opificio Sonico shows how to use a mechanical LEGO brick sequencer to create minimal techno loops.
Apparently inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s Tambura Meccanico - the first known automated musical instrument dating from the late 1400s - this LEGO step sequencer is a four-track rhythm machine that uses mechanically generated electric impulses to trigger drum synth and the bass sounds. It's a very unique way to combine technologies old and new!
