Danish musicians Camilla Sørensen and Greta Christensen of Vinyl Terror & Horror create eerie musical soundscapes using an array of cut and modified vinyl records and hacked record players.

A batch of 10 Andy Warhol images — recently re discovered experiments by the artist with early Amiga computers — has been making the rounds today.
While these images may be new to us, the fact that Warhol experimented with the Amiga is anything but: This video that everyone is linking to has been on YouTube since 2008.

More to the point: The image of Debbie Harry that Warhol makes in this video is actually far better than the images everyone is buzzing about today.
So I thought I’d share that Debbie Harry portrait, above, courtesy of this earlier show of Warhol Amiga-art at the Computer History Museum.
