Franken-Bulbasaur in association with Andrew Zahn: is a toy sound sampler that distorts the pitch of any sound , that is recorded inside of it. It works by the user pressing the recorded button, which is located on the top of the shell of the model. By pressing the nose of the model, the sound will play back the given sound. But the user can mess with the distortion of the pitch of sound by twisting the eyes and the forehead of the model. The eyes and forehead are potentiometers that are link to three hidden speakers. When the playback button is pressed , the sound plays regular on the right speakers( shell, right speaker). But the sound plays late which is a delay and makes a dark, and distorted voice. This key message in the piece that I wanted make a childhood toy monstrous.
