MUSIC BY ROBOTS: JAMES HOUSTON


James Houston is a recent graduate of Glasgow's School of Art. His final project is an incredibly ingenious version of Radiohead's "Nude" aka "Big Ideas (Don't Get Any)" performed on obsolete machines:

Sinclair ZX Spectrum computer - 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

James Houston
"Big Ideas (Don't Get Any)" (mp3)

Or better yet, check out the video on his page.

Don't be put off by the long intro - after one minute things get rockin'.
