Felix's Machines

Today I came across one of the most magical pieces of sculptural/musical/installation art ever.
Kinetic art has come a long way since the days of Alexander Calder and Felix Thorn portrays this beautifully. His machines show a live audience the sheer effort and complexity found in digital music by creating  kinetic sculptures which act as a performance parallel to the intricate music being made by translating rhythmic audio structures. He says"Although my medium focuses on the development of acoustic sounds, I am continually inspired by electronic music - the countless abstractions act as blueprints for the construction of its acoustic counterparts. I aim to build a space where artificial and dream-like environments can become a reality." 
Just awesome.
