Edinburgh arts collective group Ray has built a huge replica of the Roland TR-909, a drum machine, as a celebration of the instrument’s 30 years on the market. “Some Scottish geniuses have built a nine-feet-long Roland TR-909” is a small piece posted on Fact Mag about the nine-feet-nine design. The story is accompanied by the below video that shows behind the scenes footage of the replica being assembled. It actually works! The machine can be seen at the Green Man festival in Wales this weekend. Afterwards, it will be at Bestival on September 4th to 7th.
