Among other things, soundscape artist Yair López likes to hack electronics. His website has pictures and sound samples of his various hacks while his October 2010 album epep popo (Amplified Music Pollution) is filled with noise and harsh sound manipulations. It was only until I started doing some research on López and his work that I discovered that epep popo opens with a track created from this:
Yair López’ “McDonald” (mp3)
Who doesn’t like an album that mocks McDonald’s with one of their own toys? Throughout the 7-track 20-minute experimental sound album, López displays a musical inclination in the execution of circuit bending as shown in his track, “altamar”.

Though I haven’t had a chance to listen to López’ latest work, he has self-released Narita Airport earlier this year. I’ll be giving it a listen and you should probably as well.
