    Ah, thanks for the Dave Faris and Arkizzle. The hyperreal quality of the video is really nice. Warmly weird. : )

    I thought that the cat generated the best sound.

    The machine is very attractive, the sounds not so much.

    Perhaps Cosey might consider learning to play a theremin?

    Awesome, I want one. Wish I could make it to the upcoming shows..

    “Chris & Cosey” was not an industrial music group. Also, that box is probably the coolest minimal synthesizer I have ever seen. So cool.

    have you heard of the DeWan Bros.? Pals of They Might Be Giants and others (they did the cover art work for TMBG’s Lincoln). They have a Dewonatron and did a gig at Spaceland in LA which included Geggy-Tah’s Tommy Jodan:

    and here’s what it looks like:

    “Jordan.” Tommy Jordan. Can I please type one entry anywhere without a glaring spelling mistake? Proper names error meant an “F” in Journalism school …

    Oh come on, lets not be nitpicky (re Chris and Cosey Industrial)

    No, let’s nitpick the nitpickers. In this article the phrase “industrial music group” (singular, not plural) modified “Throbbing Gristle” not “Chris & Cosey”. No claim whatsoever was made on defining the stylings of Chris & Cosey or Carter Tutti.

    In other news, I declare the Tutti Box to be delicious.

    Talented musically, electronically, and artistically, too; that piece has some beautiful wood outside, a well chosen selection of external parts, and well laid-out controls. But I did have to stop myself from sniggering at the headline.

    So what did they do to make that video look like it did? Sort of retro other-worldly? Over exposed, and with a non-normal color balance, I’m guessing, among other things.

    Is that a standard British project enclosure box? I have a Mark V E-Meter that I bought in a thrift store that has a near identical case (tho it is a bit more shallow). The proportions are right tho.

    It sounds exactly like it looks. In fact it kind of creates a soundtrack to its own use. What a beautiful little thing.

    This box is amazing. Absolutely cool dissonance.
    For those interested, here’s a video of Throbbing Gristle performing What A Day at their soundcheck in San Francisco last year:
