Play House

Sound installation by Alex Allmont uses old LEGO to create a machine to generate electronic music - video embedded below:

Play house is an automata that mechanically computes and performs hooky and hypnotic acid house. Like a generative musical loom, a single drive turns a sequence of LEGO gears, levers and latches that mutate riffs and rhythm patterns. These are played out on analogue drums and synthesisers from the halcyon days of 1980’s dance music while the machine gradually shifts the timbre and space of the sound. In the piece the process of creation is laid bare so one can indulge in picking apart the interactions driving the score, seeing sound as it changes in sculpture, exploring our expectations in music, or simply rocking out to some fruity acid.

RIP Frankie Knuckles.
Godfather Of House.

One of the most influential men in all of music, he pioneered the early Chicago House scene, which in turn spawned Acid House, the foundations for the UK rave scene to go on and create Jungle, Happy Hardcore, Dubstep and so much more.
