Backpack, Lamp, Bug

New Works By Ben Houston.

The latest bug here, housed in antique wooden volt-meter. Features 12 point magnetic patchbay and a patchable knobs. Endless sound possibilities here, really! Nice portable design.

Lamp I created from odd bulbs I found in some old photographic equipment in a dumpster and mounted to an old oak display. Bulbs glow very pleasing violet color.

Finally got my sewing set up all working and have been designing a small day pack geared toward the cyclist. This is my favorite one so far. Ergonomic shoulder straps, reflective strip and compact four pocket design. Fabric is industrial scrap from awning/sunbrella factory.

Feedback Harmonizer

The Feedback Harmonizer by Arius Blaze. This particular piece features a contoured sound board. The feedback harmonizer is a feedback-based system with controls for delay and oscillator to create swelling drone based on the original notes.

Would be best played with an ebow and slide - shown in the video with just straight plucking.

Arcana Red track

""Tuvan Demon Sniper Scat" by arcana red. i used the microgarden amongst other instruments, mostly to provide texture and occasionally cut through the sound. i'm always looking to find new ways to implement the microgarden - and it never lets me down."

thank you Arcana Red
