Radio Oscillator

This is yet another version of the Tentacle Theremin Oscillator that was initially made for Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips. This one is more of a sculptural tabletop version, with tone/volume control, and optional weather broadcast. I picked up this weather radio from a thrift store in Amarillo. The Realistic weather circuit is stil fully functional, and it toggles between the playing the oscillator circuit, or the circuit and the radio channel being played simultaneously. Powered by 9v with 1/4in. out and volume/tone control.

Here’s an example of this instrument in use. The title of this piece was “An oscillator as a gift from the heavens in a beam of light.”

This is an example of a similar design/same circuit being used with some delay and other effects.
