What happens when you take an experimental, hacked musical instrument, ask attendees at a festival to mess around on it, and record it? The results are, understandably, unpolished. But Adrienne Thomas and Tiffany Wen enlisted the help of professional musicians and producers to distill the sounds into discrete pieces of music, which are buzzy electronic rippers.

“The results are true examples of crowdsourcing sounds, music inspired by curiosity and the energy emanating from festivals — proof that we can all contribute to musical creation,” write Thomas and Wen on Nosferatune.

See the video, The Meta Modular Project, for the full story, along with clips of the top songs:

The original recordings were made at Moogfest, the electronic instrument and music festival in Asheville, North Carolina. (This year, Make: sponsored a circuit bending competition.)
