We’ve all seen videos or heard people talk about those fancy 3D printers producing colourful toy figurines or other small trinkets. But Toronto-based Secret Broadcast became the world’s first music group to record a song using a set of 3D-printed instruments.
“About a month ago, we were having a few drinks while brainstorming some ideas for our new video when we overheard someone at the next table discussing 3D printers,” said lead singer Matt Lightstone. “Five minutes later we had our concept. We thought it would be a blast to make our own 3D printed instruments and record a song with them. It hasn’t been done before, and we were all curious to find out how they would sound.”
Lightstone and his bandmates captured the printing and recording of their single “One Born Every Minute” in the video below.
