via GetLoFi where you'll find some additional info.

"Don’t be afraid to touch and interact with the artwork in Hands On, presented by Chicago-based collective, Deadline Projects. Breaking down boundaries between art and audience in this one-night exhibition, local artists unveil new work specifically created to be touched, handled, and manipulated by the audience. Hands On is part of Chicago Artists Month 2009, the fourteenth annual celebration of Chicago’s vibrant visual art community. In October, more than 200 exhibitions of emerging and established artists, openings, demonstrations, tours, open studios and neighborhood art walks take place at galleries, cultural centers and arts buildings throughout the city. Chicago Artists Month is organized by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and is made possible through support provided by Bank of America. For more information, visit:"

"1968 Control Center of the JINR's (Joint Institute of Nuclear Research) synchrophasotron in Dubna, Russia (I'd say, they had ladders to access the central panel, or maybe they just levitated up and down on excited electrons)"

I think I need to get George Mattson to build me one.

Not sure what the bottom is...

"Electro-Harmonix Effectology, Vol.8 Telstar-The Clavioline

Welcome to Electro-Harmonix's "Effectology" series, in which we create a remarkable collection of sounds using just a regular guitar and EHX effect pedals!
No keyboards,samplers or midi pickups were used.

In today's episode studio musician Bill Ruppert recreates the classic hit Telstar using just a guitar and Electro-Harmonix effect pedals.

Telstar was one of the fist pop hits to feature a synthesizer.
The Clavioline was a very early synthesizer using vacuum tubes.
Bill Ruppert also demonstrates some very unusual effects through the video as well.

EHX Pedals featured:Soul Preacher, Stereo Memory Man, Big Muff, Pulsar, Poly Phase, MicroSynth, Cathedral, Poly Chorus"

Circuit Bending Improv - Kids Drum

YouTube via kerikino
"Found this "kids drum" at goodwill/salvation army.

I've had difficulty making practical use of circuit bent toys, because of their unpredictability. However, in this case I feel like the Kids drum is somewhat practical. I realize that a lot of cthe circuit bent charm is the in the uncertainty of what sounds will come out, etc... But i wanted to go beyond circuit bending for circuit bendings sake and tried to harness both the alien nature of the bent toy and then the more human side. My description probably makes little sense. You be the judge I guess."
