Musician-cum-electrician Jonathan Dagan, aka j.viewz, has turned fruits and vegetables into a range of musical instruments, electronically connecting them to a circuit board and playing the most nutritious version of Massive Attack's 'Teardrop' you've ever heard.
To do this, he connected an MIT student-designed Makey Makey circuit board to a Novation keyboard, and created various circuits using strawberries, grapes, kiwis, carrots, mushrooms, and eggplants. Technically, as the food items used are just circuit closers, this sort of musicmaking can be done with any items. But Jonathon observes the organic familiarity that comes with using an eggplant as a bass kick, and strawberries for a sweet melodic sound.
Taste and sound. Brings a whole new level of disobedience to the phrase "don't play with your food."
