Fun with an omnichord

This is what I did today:

omni-open-trim

An omnichord really is an amazing instrument. I’m amazed at how much you can get out of something which only makes two different sounds. Today I took mine apart and started circuit bending it using my bare hands (hence the batteries – I don’t want to die of electricity). The results are pretty exciting. You can really ‘play’ it by learning with bits of solder do what when you touch link them with your fingers. I guess you’ll hear the results at some point when I re-jig it into a song.

In the meantime why not watch this old video of me playing it in a graveyard…
