banana mashup

I have a feeling some of you were wondering what I was doing with a whole bunch of bananas, mini alligator clips, and my laptop, so let me explain.

This past weekend I was attending the Ohio Music Education Association (OMEA) for the first time, and I knew I was going to be there for SOME TIME, so why not have fun?

Long story short, I received a MaKey MaKey for Christmas (thanks Love!), and I loved it so much that I made my Intro to Electronic Students purchase one for their final project.

I wanted to create a keyboard of my own, so after a stop at Kroger for bananas and an extension cord, I set up my keyboard at the Ohio Wesleyan University booth at OMEA. I used bananas, a MaKey MaKey, my laptop, and my "Sounds from the Gray Goo 1.01" Max/MSP patch. BLAMO.

Now, what to do with those bananas…I wonder what I can do with bananas
