Using A Spring Reverb As A Drum

Andrew Huang making creative percussion noises      14/10/21

Andrew Huang is a musician who works with a wide range of genres and instruments - he's made music with many things that aren't instruments like balloons, trousers, water, and dentist equipment. In this latest video, he experiments using a spring reverb - conventionally used to add an echo to a signal - found inside many vintage organs and guitar amps. He integrates it with other studio elements - using a natural gate envelope, other modular devices as well as simply hitting the spring.

It's an inspiring take on a very tried-and-tested audio device. What other things do you have in your studio or home which might work as explorative and experimental sound tools? I recommend investigating the kitchen!
