Daito Manabe

26 Oct

Do you remember those infomercials on late night TV for electric muscle-stimulation devices? You know, they would transmit mild electric shocks to the muscles of lycra-clad models to make them contract and were heralded as the best way to lose weight and gain muscle mass? Well, Daito Manabe’s latest project is sort of like that – but way cooler. Manabe has rigged up a machine to turn music into electrical pulses. The music and the electrical pulse are synched together to create a ballet of contorted facial tics. With a little refinement we’ll probably see this trickery appear in either the next Playstation ad or the next Pharrell clip – or both.
