YouTuber enthusiasticElectrons made use of his iPad on this Frankenstein inspired jam with the Behringer Model D. His music app of choice is the Kindle eBook app! Here he has an electromagnetic (EM) pickup listening to the EM of the iPad as he flips through pages of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's classic.
This is a musical book report on Frankenstein, written for the Bushwick Book Club, LA chapter.
It uses an electromagnetic pickup (like on a guitar) to listen to the electronic heart of an iPad flipping through the e-book of Frankenstein. The signal is run through a classic analog synthesizer for filtering, and the synth’s 3 oscillators add more electricity to the mix.
A shorter version was performed live at Molly Mallone’s on October 27, 2019. This is the extended, full version.
Instrumentation notes: iPad Kindle App, Electromagnetic pickup, through MXR 10-band EQ, into Behringer Model D Aux-in. Korg SQ-1 sequencer controls pitch and filter cutoff. Model D out through MXR Carbon Copy analog delay, recorded in Ableton with just a touch of Valhalla Vintage Verb reverb.
