Ei Wada is a Japanese artist who specializes in making electronic music. But while he eschews acoustic instruments just like his EDM counterparts, Ei Wada's performances don't even rely on modern computers. Rather, the artist has developed a method that turns old technological equipment into musical devices with unique, percussive sounds unlike any other type of electronic music.
For his most recent performance at the 'Kenpoku Art' festival in Japan's Ibaraki Prefecture, Ei Wada transformed a series of five CRT TVs into electronic noisemakers. By hitting the screens with his hands, he was able to create mesmerizing electronic beats. In other projects, he has turned standing fans into electric guitars and created a DJ set using the old transparent slide projectors that were commonly seen in many elementary and high school classrooms.
