Circuit Bending

If you follow me on Twitter, or you have seen some of my recent blog posts, you know that I'm a fan of the Theremin, as well as electronic music in general. A few days ago, I was flicking through the channels and landed on Current TV. I stopped because this guy, Pete Edwards, was talking about "circuit bending" and I thought it was pretty cool. I mean, the sounds he coaxed out of Speak & Spells, talking baby dolls, wristwatches, etc. was nothing short of amazing! (Disclaimer: My opinion only. YMMV.)

Apparently, it was an older TV episode because this clip of Edwards' TV appearance was uploaded to YouTube in early 2009. I figure fellow electronic music aficionados and sound designers would like to check it out!

Can you believe he does this for a living? Talk about following your passion!
