ATG Quirkies: The Boston Typewriter Orchestra

Aficionados of “pre-digital” typing will love this post. The focus is a new documentary called California Typewriter which headlines Tom Hanks and features cameos from rocker John Mayer and playwright-actor Sam Shepard.

But arguably, the real star of the show is “the Boston Typewriter Orchestra and their composition “The Revolution Will Be Typewritten” which “is the percussive, dinging soundtrack for the trailer, shot primarily in the film’s titular typewriter-repair shop in Berkeley.”
