Homemade 'acoustic laptops'

Tore Honoré Bøe makes 'acoustic laptops' - homemade wooden boxes loaded with contact microphones and various rattly/shaky noismaking things. The videos don't really help explain what's going on, but they do look cool. (thanks, Scott and Beware of the Blog)

Check out the work of the Londoner Hugh Davies; in the mid seventies he invented and performed with electro-mechanic instruments like these. some were built into the emptied covers of the Encyclopedia Britannica! Unfortunately this great pioneer died a few months ago.
