The strange little bunny-owl hybrids that have haunted the dreams of over-indulgent parents since its introduction in 1998 could not have a more fitting destiny that to receive electronic lobotomies and be forced into a life of bizarre servitude as the singing voices of this electronic musical intrument.
Using a psychologically scarring array of 48 of the big-eared, babbling little monsters, Sam of Look Mum No Computer has created the ultimate
torture device musical instrument.
Each of the little beasties sings at a different pitch, and is tied to the keyboard at the front. They’re all hacked and wired together, and Sam can wake them with the press of a switch.
And if some fall back asleep, there’s a little wire in their tiny brains that receives an electrical jolt to force them back to consciousness whether they want to or not.
The instrument is actually rather amazing, and Sam can actually play some listenable music on the strange device — assuming you can ignore the moans and cries as each of the little animals receive direct cranial stimulation via its own set of intrusive electrodes.
Pause the Krypton Radio player at the top of the page here, then watch, listen, and be amazed. Or repulsed, take your pick.
