The “Di.Di.Di.” (which stands for Device Digital Distorition) by Mexican artist Gilberto Esparza is a custom made instrument built from 10 recording circuits taken from old toys and hacked to distort their sound. 20 touch sensors on the instrument control the sounds the piece emits so that it records its own sounds and those from its local environment and remixes them into a feedback loop.

    Does anyone else get the joke? I wonder if Mr. Esparza is a Carlos Mencia fan?

    Wow, this is amazing.
    Amazing that something so rubbish got a gig, amazing that it was recorded, amazing that it got featured on here and amazing that people clapped when he had finished.

    What a pile of junk.
