what you find in the morning after a good night in the great outdoors.
What do you get when you combine a taxidermied badger with a theremin? You get the Badgermin. Yes, in this world of “if it can be done, why not try it?” somebody actually created what is likely to be the first ever electronic instrument stuffed inside a dead animal.
The Badgermin is the warped, yet somehow awesome, creation of electronic artist and sculptor David Cranmer, and it is exactly as weird as it sounds. The creepy-looking badger has had his guts replaced with the electronics from a PAiA Theremax theremin.
Now that you’ve had a chance to let the image of the Badgermin etch itself permanently into your retinas, take a listen. Just make sure your cats and dogs are out of the room unless you want them to start freaking out.
Visit Technabob to watch a video of the Badgermin being played! It’s a sight you’re not likely to forget anytime soon.
