Musician releases songs in a $23 electronic gizmo

Artist: FM3
Title: Buddha Machine
Format: Soundbox
Price: $23.00
Catalog #: BUDDHA 001

2nd edition now available! A unique 'soundbox' from China, distributed via Staalplaat. A totally dazzling item which causes jaw-dropping delight everywhere -- Alan Bishop bought twenty-four of these on sight, Brian Eno bought eight (how's that for apocalyptical math?). Kind of like a little AM radio, but without all the nonsense -- total genius from out of nowhere. More info/pictures at: Comes with 2 x AA (Chinese) batteries. "Fm3 is opening a new special series of Staalplaat. The Buddha Machine is a small soundbox made in China which comes with an integrated speaker, a volume control, mini jack-out and a switch to choose between nine different loops which are stored on a small chip and can be directly played by this mini soundsystem. A number of other artists will continue this series soon."

FM3's latest release, Buddha Machine, is not a CD or a download. It's a "a self contained FM3 loop player" -- a $23 white plastic box that looks a little like an iPod and it plays nine sound loops. Brian Eno is said to have purchased eight of them. You can buy one at Forced Exposure.
