Buddha Machine (New Soundbox)Philip Glass
More than a decade ago the Beijing-based duo of Christiaan Virant and Zhang Jian released their first "Buddha Machine" loop box, a quirky pocket sound system that propelled sound art into the consumer mainstream. For their newest release, Virant and Zhang team up with Philip Glass for a special-edition Buddha Machine to commemorate the legendary American composer's 80th birthday on January 31, 2017. This new unit comes in two soft-tone colors, and offers seven long-playing loops of distinctive and hypnotic Glass works, featuring piano, organ and voice. Requires 2 AA batteries (not included).
