Stick around for a set from the band as the tool-handle dip on your freshly built contact microphone dries. Additional take-home kits and other surprises will be available, come build a mic and see and hear some of the circuit-bent instruments you've read about on up close.

Clearly using samples of a piano when it hits an area of contrast. The comment thread on Vimeo is great.

Bring to Orlando: HATCH Experience

1 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

When I found out about this, it made me think of the same kind of thing I would like to see grow out of Florida Creatives - something multi-disciplinary, and not just focused on talking heads, but that inspires people to make things:

HATCH is a biannual four-day experience that energizes creative professionals and thought leaders who are serious about transforming their ideas and talents into bold action, while inspiring others to do the same.

About Me

Catherine Templeton
I am a jeweler and a self-representing artist. I create OOAK artisan jewelry. My husband and I also play steel drums (we are master panners,) we call ourselves SteelBaroque - because we are. LOL! My main interest in joining this group is to find local like-minded individuals and events/venues for our art/music. I've lived in Florida since 1974. We've lived many different places around Northern and Central Florida: Sopchoppy, Yulee, Forrest Corners, Spring Hill, DeLand, and now 3 miles behind Cinderella's Castle (Winter Garden.)

Animatronics Experimenter's Kit

1 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

Aaron Fecther, creator of Showbiz Pizza's Rockafire Explosion, sells a kit for making a talking head animatronic robot. In this example he uses an air compressor, a light switch and a cassette deck to control the performance - exactly the same technology he used in the 1970s. A lot of people in the YouTube comments ask about using computers or MIDI, and I'm sure this is possible as well.

You can buy the kits from
