    Brother: Scrapheap Symphony

    Play

  • 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 for Brother and Grey London.

    Who needs any kind of post-production special effects, when you can reverse-engineer photocopiers, modems, scanners, fax machines and hard drives to make sounds that together play a very apt rendition of Dylan's 'The Times They Are A-Changin' for real?

    With programming and electronics work by is this good?, the film is inspired by other kindred tinkerers and electronic adventurers, like Tristram Cary, James Houston and BD594.
