The Boston Typewriter Orchestra

Boston Typewriter Orchestra

Today’s post is short, but introduces you to a group you probably have not heard of, doing something you probably have not thought of!

(Oh, and belated Happy New Year!)

I discovered this group the other evening when we went to see the documentary film “California Typewriter”.  Here is their description of what they do:

“A collective endeavor which engages in rhythmic typewriter manipulation combined with elements of performance, comedy and satire. BTO aims to entertain the masses while providing an outlet for the creative urges of its members.” (

As you will see/hear, this group uses typewriters to perform music.

Here is an initial link to one of their performances.

If you are interested in knowing more, here is their site.

Perhaps, if you have an old typewriter, you too could do what they do.
