James Houston's amazing retro-tech remix of Radiohead's Nude
Big Ideas (don't get any) - James Houston (2008)
James Houston's amazing retro-tech remix of Radiohead's Nude track on "a collection of old redundant hardware" uses the following lineup:
"Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Guitars (rhythm & lead)
Epson LX-81 Dot Matrix Printer - Drums
HP Scanjet 3c - Bass Guitar
Hard Drive array - Act as a collection of bad speakers - Vocals & FX"
to create a obsoleted media robot band puppeteered by Houston to perform a fantastically mechanical cover of Radiohead's Nude...
the production still above shows Houston on the film set with the devices. the fact that this 'music video' was filmed on 16mm film makes the mediation of/meditation on these obsoleted media/devices even more wonderful - jonCates
