Lego House Machine

Alex Allmont is a full-time coder, a part-time Ph.D. in polyrhythmic music, and a long-time Lego fan. All those things come together in his latest creation, a fantastically complex Lego machine that churns out mesmerizing electronic music.

 

Play House, as he calls it, was built for AudioGraft, an experimental music festival in Oxford, England. It plays sounds based on the drums and notes particular to the Roland TB303, the synth responsible for that signature acid sound.

 

See (and hear) the Lego acid machine at work below and watch a walkthrough of the, quite frankly, cool creation here.
