Screaming Mushroom

I was cooking some Cep mushrooms (Boletus edulis) with a friend the other day in a sandwich press and discovered the agonizing screams that are contained within.

Turns out if you’ve got a big mushroom, and put some weight on them while they cook they’ll let out an almighty shriek.

 

Kinect Controlled Granular Scratching

Another demo of some recent mappings I’ve come up with for the Kinect. So far it’s been the most complicated setup to learn, but it’s certainly been the funnest. It’s using 8 parameters from my hands; 6 positions, and 2 speed values. Any sample works in this, however this sample was great because of the bass in the guy’s voice, which helped me get some nice bassline-sounding modulations out of it.
