Stylophone Madness

Stylophones might be the least great musical instruments ever invented but these guys done good all the same.

Mark Kermode plays 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' from 2001: A Space Odyssey whilst gurning like a mentalist:



Some guys from Leeds playing beloved rap songs:



And an ensemble playing some Bach:

Alright, I've been biding my time here with this, and I hope you do not mind that I give this little thread a bump, but I might help morph this into real musical madness (in time).

For now, all I have left to give (at this moment) is this:

(still unclear on the identity of the above artist / band)

this could quite easily be used for musical madness: a new stylo-style musical instrument. But the guy is playing it far too sanely for it to be mad just yet.

(another) Question: would you at all mind if I start contributing just plain awesome retro keyboards, sometimes standing alongside their ridiculously-rad human counterparts? I've acquired a few of these, too, and would hate for them to just go to waste.

The context of it:
Brett Domino and Steven Peavis of the Brett Domino Trio perform a short hip-hop medley to showcase the variety of sonic treats that emanate from Dubreq’s new Stylophone Beatbox.

my own personal commentary: The guys' near-cockneyed accent is great to hear, and sets a good indication of what to expect. Thanks for sharing this one.

PS
Also, that Roger Linn new prototype instrument is right nice. I'd like to see more of that, definitely.

And what's more, even though that Bach's 'Air' video was the shortest, it was the one that stuck. I really liked it.

...but something's not right with that Bach one. The video looks sped up but the sound doesn't sound it. Also I would prefer that they learned their parts rather than reading it!

I now understand why I have this inescapable need to want to post intriguing keyboard visuals: I originally mistakenly shifted the meaning of a 'stylophone' to that of 'keytar', and perhaps that's why I find it hard to let it go. So hard, in fact, that I'm moving on with them and through them, so I do hope you don't mind it.


Building a stylo / piano / DJ-mixing station... is, actually, quite-amusingly hot.
(they're Asian chicks, what's more, and in certain circles, would be referred to as a 'nerd's dream'.)

I've been trying to give this hybrid/unseen instrument a name, but it's harder than I initially perceived it.
Right now, it's in between a 'xylophoner' and a 'keypilo'

Jetee, that's a "melodica". If you remember the Philly band "The Hooters", they used one quite a bit in their music.

Yeah, I'm no good at coming up with witty titles, or new un-yet-seen words.
And I'm barely familiar with bands I actually listen to, so no, I haven't heard of "The Hooters", I'm afraid.

They are my ArduinoMe or Monome Clones, as you prefer. They
have a 64 button/led matrix fully configurable and works on OSC/Midi.
They are the coolest hardware controllers on the world, pure action/reaction.

author's comments:
This is a video of a remix performance of Radiohead's "Reckoner" from In Rainbows that I've been working out on the monome for a while now. I'm using my monome 64 running mlrV to chop and sequence each track/loop. The black monome 40h I built with ultraviolet (UV) LEDs is running vu scroll (a scrolling VU meter app) which is picking up the sound in the studio from the laptop's built-in mic. All of the audio was recorded and mixed down in Ableton Live 8. I used my laptop's iSight and a small Sony for the video. I used Adobe Premier Pro CS4 to edit the video (it was my first time using Premier Pro for a project).

GetLoFi » Circuit Bent Famicom with a Famicom breakout box


synopsis:
Kaseo has recently completed a circuit bent Famicom with another Famicom as a break out box for the first unit! This was done probably because space is a premium in a Famicom, unlike those great bulky US NES model which allow for tons of switches and knobs, but either way it looks cool. The breakout box also has an audio input that is seen through out the video affecting the scan lines. Now I need to see an circuit bent Atari 2600 with another Atari 2600 as a breakout box.

Not sure if this pertains, but I found it gaining buzz, and it is sort of controversial, in the musical instrument sense.

The short, syncopated history of...

STYLOPHONE REBORN | BoingBoing Gadgets

The Stylophone, a '60s-era electric musical instrument with a metal keyboard activated by stylus, has been reissued, this time with a line-out and two new sounds. Stylophones make sound from an oscillator wired to a resistor—the stylus completes the circuit. They've been used with some frequency in pop music over the years, according to L'Wikipeaudeax.
The Stylophone appears on a few commercial recordings, most notably David Bowie's "Space Oddity" and "Slip Away" and the commercial rave single "Stylophonia" by Two Little Boys in 1991. Kraftwerk used the Stylophone on the track "Pocket Calculator" from their album Computer World. The British duo Erasure also employed it on the single "Don't Say Your Love Is Killing Me" (from the album Cowboy in 1997) as well as on their 2000 album "Loveboat". In a lesser-known instance, the Stylophone is used for the bulk of Orbital's single, "Style". Marilyn Manson made use of it for "You and Me and the Devil Makes 3". They Might Be Giants played the Stylophone in several of their songs, including a number on their 2007 album, The Else. Jon Spencer has used the Stylophone extensively on recordings with his band Blues Explosion, and has famously had problems bringing the device — described as "the world's most annoying musical instrument" — through airport security.
