fun with appliances 

Apparently Bruce Haack, an electronic music pioneer, could fashion a synthesizer from just about anything. He invented the Dermatron, a heat sensitive device attached to the skin, which he once used to play 12 "chromatically pitched" young women. Best known for his children's music series Dance, Sing and Listen, he also composed a concept album called The Electric Lucifer. Wacky but so ahead of his time.

Eenie Meenie Records has released a tribute album (release party tonight in L.A.) featuring artists such as Beck and The Eels. Check the myspace page for The Apples in Stereo performing a trippy rendition of Liza Jane or click here for the man himself.
