The Loft Chicago | Wilco's recording studio adds to their BrandNewNoise collection
The Loft, Wilco's recording studio in Chicago has an incredible collection of rare instruments, recording gear, and oddities. So it's been a great honor to see the band collecting BrandNewNoise throughout the years.
Wilco recently added the Toy Piano with reverse audio switch to their instrument collection and said,
"Here at the Loft, we often times find it can be a very fine line between 'tool' and 'toy'. And...well, in life too, really. This is precisely the territory Richard Upchurch at BrandNewNoise treads in the creation of his oddball handmade sound machines. We have loads of them here at the Loft that are used to create fun and nutty audio loops, to crack ourselves up with saved and sped up audio, and as I've mentioned here before, as a great tool to mess with spam callers. This new modded electronic toy piano, though, has so many possibilities, I have a feeling we may never find the limits of its potential. It's a new to the Loft and hasn't been called into duty...so I look forward to the gang exploring it to the fullest."
Jeff Tweedy has been seen using his BrandNewNoise music box on The Tweedy Show, a livestream @stuffinourhouse, Susan Tweedy's Instagram account showcasing, well, stuff in their house. If you're lucky enough, Jeff might sing Happy Birthday to you using his Krankie!
