EMG TV

TIM KAISER
tweaked-out this
Electronic Music Generator TV
for BILL T MILLER

A Talk N Learn Numbers toy has been circuit-bent and re-housed in a video monitor case. Number keypad is located on the top and the other controls are on the front where the original monitor controls would have been.

The screen is a fresnel lens. Inside is a nice parabolic flash reflector with a couple of blinking L-E-Ds to give it a weird retro sci-fi kind of look. Also on the top is a removeable superflous lamp that rapidly blinks in multicolors in a seizure-inducing manner.

This thing produces generate endless amounts of random melodic segments. Also plays simple kids songs (unglitched) and says the numbers.

Front panel controls include:
ON/OFF Toggle
LED Indicator
Speaker/Output Jack Toggle
Mode Trigger Button
Mode Select Toggle (music or numbers)
Pitch-Glitch Toggle
Pitch-Glitch Knob
Glitch Trigger Button
Built-in speaker and standard 1/4" output jack

TK BTM TRI BOX RIG

In 2012, almost a decade later after scoring the EMG TV,
TIM KAISER hooked BILL T MILLER with these three boxes.
L-R = Quad Oscillator & Roto Vibe & Thumb Piano
BTM then did bonus custom mod on the Roto Vibe adding a contact mic
for the acoustic sound of the rotary dialer... and added springs
and a music box to the thumb piano.
