Jumpsuits and Solenoids?
February 12, 2011 5:39 PM   Subscribe

Totally failing at finding a series of videos of a Japanese man in a jumpsuit and hardhat who has invented several musical instruments based on solenioids. Anybody know what I'm talking about and/or where to find them?

What were the production values like? First thing I thought of was the TV show by Hiroyuki Hayashi of POLYSICS fame. Here's a clip.

Can't find any hardhats, but jumpsuits and solenoids sound a lot like Maywa Denki.

Yup, I'd say Maywa Denki is likely what you're thinking of, TheCoug, although you may have misremembered the hardhat part. They don't generally sport hardhats, as far as I'm aware.

Thanks Moonmilk and Flapjax! Not sure where I go the hardhats from, maybe just wishful extrapolation?
