The wonderful Felix’s Machines play live in London

Felix's Machines

For one night only Felix’s Machines will converge with Plaid. Support by Leafcutter John, Plaid (dj set) and Missaw (dj set)

Felix’s Machines are extraordinary  music-making sculptures built by Felix Thorn. Since their birth, the machines have been solely prescribed with the music of their creator.

Thorn started building his machines in his bedroom in 2006 and the project has evolved continously ever since. Once connected up to his computer, the machines, which are made up of customised piano and drum parts, translate Thorn’s compositions into mechanical actions.

If you are unable to attend this wondrous event you can console yourself by watching the short film below.

Leafcutter John is a London based songwriter and electronic musician, combining the worlds of computers and traditional folk music.
