This LEGO Sequencer Converts Colors into Sounds

The good folks at Electronic Beats spotted this excellent video demo by Rare Beasts of his rotary sequencer made from LEGO. 

If your childhood involved LEGO in any shape or form and you consider yourself a music maker, then you'll love this video by Rare Beasts. Sequencers by their very nature are more often than not fun machines to interact with. This one made from LEGO which uses color recognition to play different sounds is fun for kids and adults.

Here's what Rare Beasts say about his creation: “This is a Lego reproduction of a synth that I designed. Blocks are placed at the end of each arm, as the block passes the colour sensor the sound that corresponds with that colour is played.”

LEGO has had a legacy of being used for music machines. In fact, LEGO was even used extensively during the design prototyping of the original Ableton Push.
