what is hardware orchestra?
hardware orchestra animated linehardware orchestra transforms an old computer into a cool sound sequencer. Hardware Orchestra looks like a disrupted PC taken right out of a trash bin. It can be easily used for teaching the hardware architecture of a computer. Besides enjoying the view of a demolished piece of technology you can also become a sound-maker using this unique tool. Hardware Orchestra is an organic unity of hardware and nothing recorded. Parts of the hardware become musical instruments: hard and floppy drives, system speaker, fan, even CPU makes sounds, responding to the software commandes.
