the orange box

a live remix of electronic album art

fm3 is a band from taiwan well known for their 'buddha box' album. a colleague of mine, jonra babiracki of designforms research, owns one of these and we have been incredibly intrigued by it. as such, we developed our own approach to performing with this device by making our own loops for use in live performance. three of us, including eric cowden aka e:machinery, created 7 loops and each played them back through a complex network of signal processing boxes, including a photo-theremin, alesis f/x boxes and not without, of course, the orange box.
