I'm not sure I entirely follow how it works...it's like a steampunk CD player/burner that actually chisels the sound into glass right? Very beautiful anyway - Coil are always fascinating.

Not quite. It's more like a steampunk sequencer, or maybe a light-driven player piano.

It sounds like something the mad scientist character in the old radio plays would turn on to facilitate the world destruction.

Better that it runs on windows than on Windows.

Very cool post.
