Barcodes Play Music Using Hacked Scanners by Electronicos Fantasticos
Super fun new work from tech group Electronicos Fantasticos featured on designboom.
fronting the group is ei wada, aka crab feet, a japanese artist and musician who turns old electronic appliances into musical instruments. as well as working as part of electronicos fantasticos he’s produced music for japanese fashion designer issey miyake’s paris shows. back in 2018, design reported on his work with musical group ‘open reel ensemble’, finding a unique way of making drum beats by playing outstretched reel-to-reel tape recorders.
