ERIC SCHNEIDER - 'Toy Instruments' Book


In Stock

"Toy Instruments" comprises an eye-popping collection of musical toys made between the 1950s and today. In theory, all of these toys are meant to excite children about learning how to play an instrument. What becomes clear, however, is that these products could be as much fun for adults as children, especially for adults with their own musical interests. From the late 70s to the early 80s, the heyday of these bleeping, chirping, thrumming and keening devices, while children were busy driving their parents crazy with these battery powered sounds, adults were incorporating the unique tones into the earliest samples of electronic music and techno. Toy Instruments represents the crossroads of educational and weird. Introduction by DJ Spooky. 192pp. Hardback.
