I enjoyed the talk last night, it was interesting and explained some of the questions I had about audio modification / circuit bending. I especially enjoyed the presentation / talk by Brian Duffy of Modified Yoy Orchestra fame.
He was very enthusiastic about modification, passionate even, and that’s good to hear. It is worth checking out the Modified Toy Orchestra site which has some good video and audio clips.
I guess for me the thing that kept coming to mind was how this applies to mobile music. Lots of the modified toys are very mobile, but they aren’t really what I’m after. I love the noises, I love the sounds, but it isn’t quite right for me. It is a good place to start. Let’s see where it leads.
