What you will hear in this set are the sounds of serial data transmission. That and nothing else. I program a few 8bit microcontrollers live on stage to make them send useless serial data directly to the speakers (via a small protection circuit). Depending on the type of data being sent, at what baud-rate and how the improvised programs flow, I get different rhythms, melodies and a variety of noises.
