More circuit-bending fun--

E-Baying for more Thereminy goodness, and, through a series of links, came to this horrible thing to do to a speak-and-spell--namely, the "Speak 'n' Roil. You can actually buy things like this. This isn't as neat as the Incantor, a Speak'n'Spell designed to be played by marbles shifting around on its surface. It would spit out all these unholy phonemes...very strange. This is kind of neat as far as Java applets go.

I wish I knew more about electronics (I know, "you could learn...") I suddenly want a circuit-bent instrument that uses an Atari or Nintendo cartridge for its primary sound source. You could pop out the game and plug in another for more fun. One of the controls should be a joystick, but those wear out so easily...

A Genesis controller should fit in an Atari socket... I found that out the opposite direction when I used an Atari controller for Tails on Sonic 2. It worked great since A, B, and C did the same thing on that game. Oh, later Genesis controllers had ABC & XYZ buttons for fighting games, if you could shove even more into it.

That Speak 'n' Roil thing scared the hell out of me! *shivers*

Circuit bending is weird... I've heard samples of some circuit bent versions of a type of drum machine I have. 'Tis pretty weird stuff. I have no idea how people do it, especially how they can mess things up without breaking the whole thing in the process.

I saw on a site called something like "carrionsounds" that a lot of it is not at all being afraid to break something :)
