anyone ever try this ? you get an old telephone pick-up , the one with the suction cup , or you could use a mag guitar PU as well . then you hook that up to a recording device . when you place the "mic" on various electronic devices , odd sounds are produced . add effects or go dry , put them together as a collage of sorts and you have a horrible sounding noise piece . perfect for if you have to give your mother in law a ride to the airport , or getting unwanted party guests to go home . on a bad blind date ? bring the subject of music up , tell her you a musician , pop the cd in and your off the hook .
it was also really fun , recording this mess . try it out sometime , post your masterpiece . i am going to try another one today , going for something a lil more musical , but its tough ! trying some different appliances , i guess servos are great . we have a remote control car (those have servo's) , want to try a scanner and a printer as well . ac adapters , fans , cd walkman , dvd , xbox , pc , and digital cameras are good starting points . maybe some drills and a grinder too .
the first 24 tracks have effect , the last 8 are dry , or no effect , give it a listen :
Make a big enough coil of wire (2 or 3 feet across) and point it at Jupiter. With a good receiver, you can hear the planet's magnetic field interacting with the solar wind.
i would certainly enjoy hearing that , but it sounds like more coil wire that i could get MY hands on . you never know though . . .
did some work today on another circuit sniffing noise piece , i added 3 guitar parts , using my cbg , thru an old rp-1 that was donated to me . i just got too tired / drunk to play the tricky part , it needs some work tomorrow . this one sounds like a song a lil more , its pretty cool , i think i may do a lead , maybe with a theramin , or something goofy , backwards jaw harp or something .
Not much wire. Single loop, you could probably make a Jupiter antenna from coat hangers.
