Laurie Anderson

Note the various band members handing her violin bows near the end of this clip. Each bow is strung with a piece of magnetic tape that has an analog audio sample on it, and she plays it by drawing it across a read head mounted on the violin body. She switches samples by throwing each bow and getting a new one handed off.
