Teenage Engineering has often been accused of making hipster products that are more like toys than serious instruments - "any chance of some 'adult' engineering, guys?" - so many will welcome its decision to get serious and embark on a “scientific study in modular sound”.
“This summer we ventured into the Swedish wilderness, together with duo ericsson & reuter, to experiment with modular sound,” says the company, and the results are little short of astounding.
In case you’re wondering what you’re watching, it’s a man playing a Pocket Operator Modular 400 through an OB-4 speaker, accompanied by another man in yellow waterproofs playing a drum kit.
We await the results of the study with interest, and look forward to them being subjected to rigorous peer review.
