8 Nintendo Famicoms make sweet music

8 famicoms

The musician known as 6955 isn’t any old two-bit fiddler. He’s strung together an array of eight Nintendo Famicoms (pictured here) and linked ‘em to a Roland TR-606 and uses it all to make some thumpy, industrial 8-bit music.

We are both scared and excited for the 8-bit music movement to tip into mainstream acceptance. You might say it already has, what with Beck incorporating music generated on Game Boys into his music, but we’d like to see one of the 8-bit-boys (or girls) make it big.
