Michael Ridge is a multimedia artist in the UK who plays with sound. His experiments include a playable 7-inch record made of PVA glue and an interactive breakfast soundtrack, but his latest project on Vimeo called "Seagull Skull Pickup" might be his creepiest work yet.
The video shows the artist using the beak of a seagull skull as a needle on an old turntable. The skull actually picks up the signal and plays a recording of a British birdsong pressed on a 7-inch single record. A contact microphone is used to amplify the audio as a makeshift speaker.
