Corey Busboom’s Circuit-Bent Instrument Turns Up in Devo’s Latest Music Video
The challenging-searching circuit-bent instruments crafted by Phoenix’s Corey Busboom can survive getting accidentally came by clumsy musicians. However, these curious creations (which are manufactured from damaged electronics and household appliances) will not survive a panic attack by big kaiju monsters.
This truth is shown within the latest music video by Devo, because the legendary ’80s New Wave act’s frontman Mark Mothersbaugh wields a large amoun-fi DIY synthesizer constructed from a classic adding machine by Busboom within the lately released music video for that song "Monster Man."
As I have reported in 2010, Mothersbaugh is really a major fan of Busboom’s work, as you would expect. He isn’t only purchased near to twelve circuit-bent instruments produced by the neighborhood artist, but is really enamored together that he’s designed a practice of featuring them in Devo-related appearances on television shows, the web, and also at various live gigs.
For example, Busboom’s modified tennis racket and joystick synth made an appearance within the above promo video that Mothersbaugh shot for his alma mater Kent Condition College. And also the aforementioned adding machine was featured conspicuously during certainly one of Devo’s many appearances on Yo Gabba Gabba!

Within the video for "Monster Men," which feature the theme song in the Syfy reality show of the identical name, Devo performs on the top of the tall skyscraper while a Godzilla-like monster along with a doppelganger for Ultraman participate in mortal combat. Mothersbaugh, who – such as the other people from the band — is dressed inside a camouflage jumpsuit and it is adorned in silver facepaint along with a mask, clutches onto Busboom’s creations, a mixture oscillator and synthesizer built from the vintage Casio desktop calculator.
Well, a minimum of before the aforementioned pseudo-Godzilla journeys backwards and obliterates both band and also the building they are performing on.
If you are concerned about the health of the circuit-bent instrument, have no fear. It’ll likely appear during Devo’s next appearance or music video.
