1. Circuit bending
Circuit bending is the creative, short-circuiting of electronic devices such as low voltage, battery-powered guitar effects, children's toys and small digital synthesizers to create new musical or visual instruments and sound generators. (wikipedia)
First Concept :
First sound project is a Toy. The original sound also very interesting. I connected with a variable resistance and Ableton live software. It can change the sound lively.

Second Concept :
I use a melody kit for making experimental sound. The reason why I choose the ipod is that is the most represent music play device. I want to show that can be a different point of view. This sound can feel unconfortable to some people. But this is also kind of music.

Process : Sounds make a vibration. I use a laser pointer and reflexible materials. The vibration make a light visualization.
