Good To Know: Sounds Of Decaying Finger And Dead Bird

March 3, 2016


This is a video from a recent exposition by the Verbeke Foundation in Kemzeke, Belgium. As part of the installation, they've hooked up a decaying human finger and a dead parakeet to voltmeters that translate the readings into freaky deaky background music. You get to listen to that while taking a tour of the other exhibits. Now you'll be able to add phrases like, "Sounds like a cross between a decaying finger and a dead bird," to your witty conversations at cocktails parties. Obviously, you will be the most interesting person at the party, and I will try to come home with you, or at least make out in a closet or bathroom before you leave.

Keep going for the creepy video.

Thanks to Neils, who already knew what the sound of a decaying finger sounds like for reasons I did not choose to ask.
