notes on Dot_Matrix_Synth/Paul Slocum

  • Dot_Matrix_Synth by Paul Slocum: an ongoing project, concerning the reprogramming of the firmware in & creating extensions for the 1985 Epson LQ-500 printers to turn them into musical instruments.
  • Original idea was to make a home made "mellotron": http://www.till.com/articles/Mellotron/
  • Rythms are linked to the way the output is printed [printout]
