Pieces of 8

This image is of a collaborative work in progress by David O'Brien and me called Pieces of 8. A bicycle drives and powers

an 8 track player, where the speed of the riding determines the rate of play. Never before has AC/DC sounded so good,

and Glenn Campbell so bad. OK, maybe this device can't be the judge of that, but still. Pieces of 8 is an experiment that showed at

the Megapolis Festival in Cambridge, MA in 2009, and was sponsored by AIR, the Association of Independents in Radio. Stay tuned

for some sound samples, and further experiments in velocity effecting sound.
