Langham Research Centre electronics

What if seemingly functional machines had individual characters and personalities? Inspired by the quirks and imperfections of obsolete technology, Langham Research Centre gives the premiere of The Dark Tower, a response to the life of one of the most famous electrical engineers of the 20th century, Nicholas Tesla.

Surrounded by over 5,000 medical specimens, watch the creation of scintillating electronic music using tape machines, sine-wave oscillators and phonographic cartridges.

Britain’s leading musique concrète performing group.” The Guardian
