Film composer cooks up music in the kitchen (video)
What do you do when you're "bored and curious"? You build a synthesizer and turn everyday kitchen tools into musical instruments, of course. At least that's what Stephen J. Anderson does.
It's inevitable. Whenever you throw a party, it might start in the living room, but it always ends up in the kitchen.
Film composer Stephen J. Anderson created a party of sorts in his kitchen recently. He crafted a synthesizer out of old electronics and then attached various objects--bowls, a cheese grater, a whisk--to it to compose music. (Or, as he puts it, "to make noise using amplified static electricity.") In this YouTube video, watch him transform cans of Pam cooking spray, among other things, into a musical instrument. This is what happened, Anderson said, when he got "bored and curious" at the same time.
