Author & Punisher (Tristan Shone) - Dub Machines

Author & Punisher aka Tristan Shone makes the type of music I don't usually listen to, but I'm still completely mesmerized by the instrument featured in the video above. The instrument itself is called a Dub Machine and its described as:

"Drone/Dub Machines are custom made machines fabricated from raw materials and utilizing open source circuitry. The devices draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation, robotics and mechanical tools and devices, focusing on the eroticism of interaction with machine. The machines require significant force from the performer, aligning he or she with the plodding drone and doom influenced sounds that are created."

It's such a unique and intense looking piece of industrial machinery, I wonder what it's like to see live.
