Singing skull

Home Music

Modd3d has created a MIDI driven Halloween centerpiece of awesomeness –

I ripped the brains out of one of those cheap Gemmy skulls with the moving mouth and glowy eyes and installed a Midify board. It was a fairly easy project and I now have full control over the mouth and eyes. Now I just have to work on its musical taste.

Personally, I think the skull’s musical selection is spot-on. [via Synthtopia]

    oddly enough, I think I’ve got a copy of that song on vinyl. (for the curious, it is “I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts” by Freddy Martin and his orchestra)

    May I also suggest Phill Harris’ “The Thing”

    (I’m a fan of almost anything that Dr. Demento would play.)

    I would love to do this too. Could you please add a video showing step by step how to do it?
