Sounds And Things That Make Them

Hamster Piano

Heavily modified, hand-painted Hin Hon EEK-01: the classic toy keyboard that creates rich squarewave sounds reminiscent of Commodore 64 or Atari 8-bit computer

Attached control panel made from tubes meant for a hamster cage, housing the following mods:
-switchable pitch/speed knob
-3 buttons that create tone glitches
-4 glitch switches that mangle the sound, effects depending largely on which/how many switches are thrown
-4 switchable knobs that dial in whatever effect they feel like making that day- often throwing drum sounds into the keyboard tone or playing more than one tone simultaneously
-metal bar that, when touched, creates a vibrato effect
-1/4" output installed on the keyboard
