This is Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo, with the Electronium... an analog sequencer and algorithmic composer, the life work of Raymond Scott. You may not know who Raymond Scott was, but you've heard his music... he wrote some of the most distinctive tunes used by Warner Brothers in Looney Tunes, including the incomparable Powerhouse theme.
Mark has bought the only surviving model of the machine from Motown, and is going to repair and refurbish it.
I think it looks like something Wile-E Coyote would use, and it sounds like it too: http://oldsite.raymondscott.com/ElecTwil.wav
