Thanks for asking kineticturtle! This keyboard glitches really beautifully, the recordings so far are largely the outcome of bending a few different points on the PCB - FM chip data bus and what I *think* might be a ROM address bus (it's a mystery part).

Sometimes I just add a few bends and hit the demo song button and just let it do it's thing. Other times I perform with it a bit more by changing bends around while recording, or by laying hands on the output circuitry.
