“Bicycle Wheel + Walkman” at World MakerFaire

Spotted at World MakerFaire, this cool project by Adam Matta. I like the reference to Marcel Duchamp’s Readymade Bicycle Wheel.

Nicely done! Happy Friday!

  1. Very nifty project. Funny, I missed the Duchamp reference at first…instead fixated thinking of Laurie Anderson’s tape-bow violin.

  2. De double oh de double oh style. Mix master mike would be proud. I was guessing til video started great work.

  3. Very cool!

    Also reminiscent of Laurie Anderson’s violin with tape on the bow.

  4. I was like, umm what? Links are no help … then I looked very closely and realized it wasn’t to be attached to a rolling bike, but apparently a loop of magnetic tape mounted in the wheel that touched the tape heads. Looks like an analog loop that can be scrubbed to-and-fro.
