Japanese Artist Turns TVs Into Musical Instruments
With all of the inventive sound creations that we’ve came across, we never thought we’d see this! The man behind the TV’s is Ei Wada, a Japanese musician and artist who turns throwaway electronics into crazy musical instruments.

From his website:
“Born in 1987. Ei Wada adapts old-fashioned electronic machines, converting them into computer-controlled devices. He puts on performances with these machines, as well as creating musical work and installations for exhibition. In 2009, he started the group Open Reel Ensemble, which manipulates and plays reel-to-reel tape recorders. The group is involved in a wide range of activities including concert performances, DVD/CD and book publishing, art installations and providing music for movies and catwalk shows. Recently it has begun an ambitious orchestral project using 20 reel-to-reel tape recorders.”
