Steampunk Sequencer Yoshi Akai Generates Audio From LEGOs

Posted by collect3d, March 10th, 2010

Check out this crazy video of steampunk musician Yoshi Akai creating basic audio with this craftily invented Steampunk Sequencer MR II, which essentially uses 3D LEGO blocks to recreate a three-channel, eight-step sequencer. Each colored plastic brick produces a singular sound, and more complex audio layering can be achieved through stacking these musical LEGOS. Akai, who wrote his master’s thesis on turning color into sound, has literally found a way to build sound with LEGO blocks – amazing!
