    Most. Annoying. Sound. Ever.

    pretty awesome.

    question: was the reverb an effect of having all those large antennae so close to each other (some sort of simple/harmonic oscillation) or did they just add a reverb before the sound output? anyone know?

    Thanks. There was a good amount of interference with six antennas that large & close to each other. That didn’t create the sound effects though. We cheated a bit, two of the six signals were routed through guitar floor effects.

    Awesome, bends the mind a little. Can’t get that experience in front of a TV, or even online. Experiencing something different is always a cool thing to do. Science!
