Paper Circuit Controlling a Doepfer A-152 Sequencer by Frederic Gerchambeau

Frederic Gerchambeau uploads interesting analog/modular videos to his GruithuisenCityMan YouTube account very frequently.
This time he hasn't uploaded a musical piece, but just an interesting demo of an idea.
In the video he shows how a paper circuit, a simple sheet of paper with an unknown conductive/capacitive substance, can be integrated into a modular system.
Sadly Frederic's videos don't often come with a lot of information...

Hello ! My name is Frederic Gerchambeau. I have made this movie and this music. The music has been made using a Doepfer analog modular system including an A-152. Enjoy !

The idea is not new, but i haven't seen the use of it in combination with the A-152 Voltage Addressed Track&Hold / Analog Shift Register.
Earlier this year I posted about another project using a capacitive paint, you can find that HERE.
I assume the same Bare Conductive paint is used here, but i'm not sure...
