This my new favorite circuit bend/music mod, worms. Ashfordaisyak writes –

Here we see an ensemble of worms creating sweet, sweet electroacoustic music on an electric touch contact feedback device (battery powered). No worms were harmed, despite the fact that they appear alarmed. They secrete albumen which is a sort of numbing thing (I think). Anyways, they were hastily removed and now live happily outside once again. I believe that worms will be writing the pop hits of the future.

    This reminds me of the song from the Muppet Show called “There’s a New Sound”.

    Thats some shreaky fit right there….How much current’s running through the worms, on average?

    shreaky fit hahahahahahaha….

    I’m not a wormologist, but have research time. The level of discomfort shown at first may give alarm, but after watching the worm acclimate and start to explore, i feel better about this.

    musical results were hardly worth the effort IMO. MAKEs you think, though….

    I LOVE randomness. This idea is genius.
