The Dorothy Matrix 8-Bit Orchestra by Sloopygoop
Classical music meets retro gaming! The Dorothy Matrix 8-bit Orchestra features drag queen Dorothy "Dot" Matrix conducting an orchestral concert featuring selections ranging from Mozart to Prokofiev. The orchestra is 8 vintage Nintendo Game Boys. Dorothy presses the Start buttons and the music begins – in a surreal combination of performance art, electronic music, and synchronized light.
