Despite the title this video (below) is about electronic music and some weird and wonderful software and hardware that has been invented to create it.

Even if you don't have the patience or deep interest in computer generated music to sit through all of it have a quick look at random points in the video - you are sure to find something to amuse you and you will probably have to back track to see if there is more of the same.

 

The speaker is Eric Singer and the talk is about LEMUR -League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots. Some of the early experiments he talks about look very clunky by todays embeded hardware standards. but they look fun and make sure you see the demo of the early music creation software - a visual language if there ever was one.
