FONTONOLA

The FONTONOLA, at the Plus International Design Expo, Wild Building, Birmingham.

Subverting the idea of the Player Piano, graphic designer, illustrator and musician Andrew Spackman has designed and made the Fontonola. The Fontonola is a machine that simultaneously projects a simple typographic phrase whilst triggering looped samples, which can be re-ordered, manipulated and remixed into a live improvised soundscape.
