An experiment using an unbalanced audio cable and various EMI emitters such as my phone's fingerprint scanner, LCD screen, trackpad, switchmode power supplies and the like.

Very "spectral." So you're using an induction or electromagnetic microphone?

Mainly induction straight onto the cable. I got some NE5532 opamps to make a boost circuit and use that to amplify stray interference onto the cable and ran that into my RME. Also really good for boosting other things like the triboelectric effect of bending the cable itself.

You shold use a guitar Pickup on Synth-LCD Displas, they sounds realy strange, like a modem!

Outstandingly cool idea.  And the result of the experiment is mysterious and engaging.  Nicely done.
