Shorn TV: MIDIfied Chamberlin and More
Chamberlain plays for you

In our latest report from Hollywood, courtesy of Jack from Future Music on Sunset Blvd Hollywood, our reporter Shorn Rah is introduced to Woody Jackson, a collector and enthusiast of all kinds of rare and weird musical stuff. Woody has restored and MIDIfied an original Chamberlain tape playback unit.

Each note is actually a piece of tape running in loop with it’s own tape head. Stay tuned, there’s more to come...
