Pedal power

If you've ever spent time in a guitar shop playing with all the different pedals and thinking about all the crazy sounds you could make if you chained them all together, then, well, you're clearly not alone.

Former Talking Heads singer and generally interesting chap David Byrne's latest project is an interactive art piece that's basically one epic pedal board, comprising 96 effects wired to a guitar at one end and an amp at the other.

Viewers are invited to trample on the pedals as much as they like — there's a video demonstrating the results right here, and more information at Byrne's website.
