A new video sees musician Giuseppe Acito of Opificio Sonico demonstrating how to use a sequencer made from Lego bricks to create techno loops.
"It consists of a four tracks rhythm machine which mechanically generates the electric impulses needed to trigger the drum synth and the bass-line sync," Acito has explained.
"On the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death, this is my personal tribute to his genius who in the late 1400s introduced "tamburo meccanico" the first known automated musical instrument," he's written.
Watch the demonstration below.
