Faster Than Sound - Game: Modified Toy Orchestra

Modified Toy Orchestra explore the hidden potential and surplus value latent inside redundant technology; a process creating sophisticated new electronic instruments from abandoned children's toys.
They have been at the forefront of a worldwide underground movement called circuit bending, which involves rescuing children's electronic toys and converting them into new strange and wonderfully sophisticated musical instruments.
Taking them apart, they find new connections hidden within each toys circuit that reveal new sounds, thus exposing the surplus value of redundant technology. Toys are re-assembled, including switches and dials with which to control this surplus value. The results of this process can be shockingly beautiful, funny and also extreme.
