Symphony #2 for dot matrix printers

The Symphony for dot matrix printers transforms obsolete office technology into an instrument for musical performance. Fifteen vintage dot matrix printers are manipulated live by a local area network orchestra, creating an intricate audiovisual composition that pays tribute to the bruitiste ideas of the Futurists while evoking the musical palette of minimal techno.
