YokoMono : Touring Installation by Staalplaat Soundsystem

You want loops? You want noise? You want little battery-operated cars?
You want to kill your vinyl records, send a radio broadcast and have a great
time in the process? Well, those folks at Staalplaat already beat you to it:

"Yokomono consists of 10 small car-shaped record players, a corresponding
set of FM radios and two mixing desks. The cars, known as "vinyl killers,"
have been customised with wireless FM transmitters. As they spin around
the vinyl, they transmit their signal to the FM radios tuned to a special
Yokomono frequency. This transmission is then mixed, edited and
manipulated in real-time by members of the Staalplaat Soundsystem"
