Big Ideas (don’t get any)

Wonderfully retro remix of Radiohead’s "Nude" courtesy of graphic design student James Houston and an assortment of early computing hardware. Featuring an Epson LX-81 Dot Matrix Printer on Drums, an HP Scanjet 3c on Bass Guitar, a collection of hard drives as vocals and FX, and my own personal favourite – a Sinclair ZX Spectrum on rhythm and lead guitars. Says James:

"Based on the lyric (and alternate title) "Big Ideas: Don’t get any" I
grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed
them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something
that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there."

***UPDATE: Radiohead’s amazing House of Cards promo film, shot without the use of cameras and using only lasers and scanners, is getting some good coverage and is also worth a look if you haven’t seen it.***
