Mexican Jumping Beans
From a journey to Mecico Paul Panhuysen brought mexican jumping beans which are sold there as toys on the local markets. Back in Eindhoven he began to experiment with these beans in different settings.
As a result a cd with different recordings was published which used piezo discs as contact microfones. Here you hear a short section from recording No. 3, Mr. Bean. The beans were jumping in eight containers made of various materials like plastic, aluminium or wood among others.
