buddha machines have arrived !!

If you don't know what these are they are kind of
hard to describe... but when Brian Eno discovered
them he went right out and bought eight. It's not
a digital audio player (at least not in the traditional
sense) it's barely even much of a device at all. The
FM3 Buddha Machine is just an audio out jack, a
pitch bender, an on off switch, and an integrated
speaker. Turn it on and it repetitively plays back
one of nine ambient loops. That's it, but somehow
the machine has captured the imaginations of
many with its deceptive simplicity. Alan Bishop
from Sun City Girls apparently has 24 of them,
no joke. come on in and check 'em out...
