Open Reel Ensemble

Open Reel Ensemble scratches four reel-to-reel analog tape recorders (as seen in the 1970’s).  Never actually touching the tape decks, the quartet uses an iPhone to manipulate USB controllers and solenoids to create vibrato effects, creating a genre-defying, vintage-modern roller coaster of beats.

Filmed at TEDxTokyoYZ.
