Put down your synths, barcodes are the new way to play techno

How far will technology take us? With MIDI 2.0 breathing brand new life into digital music instruments what is the future of electronic instruments? The supermarket checkout, apparently.

Prepare to have your mind blown by this immense techno jam done entirely by the checkout team at Wal-Mart. Okay, they’re not actually cashiers but incredible musical engineers and creatives.

They’re called Electronicos Fantasticos and, led by artist and musician Ei Wada, they create art projects by transforming old electrical equipment into “electromagnetic musical instruments”. Launched in Tokyo, their incredible and unique instruments use a barcode scanner to identify patterns which produce different sounds when scanned and make for something totally different.

Check out more from Electronicos Fantasticos on their YouTube Channel and read more about them from their website.
