Produced between 2006 and 2009, artist Dan McPharlin attempted to “pay tribute” to early synths and recording equipment with a stunning (and rather cute) collection of miniatures.
“Rather than replicating existing machines, the focus was on creating a revisionist history where analogue technology continued to flourish uninterrupted,” says McPharlin of the project which saw him use “framing matt-boards, paper, plastic sheeting, string and rubber bands.” for the creation project.

To be honest, there really isn’t too much more to say on the matter. Just go through the gallery below and think about how cool your childhood action figure/barbie/doll/whatever setup would have been, if they all were avant-garde musicians using these tools to create blips and bloops instead of war (looking at you, GI Joe)
