Interact with Sheryl Jean
Marshall Thompson creates techno music with the aid of the Cookie Monster and Elmo.
The microchip layout designer at Texas Instruments Corporation. is promoting a music and lightweight system according to TI toys, like the Touch and Tell, or toys which contain TI parts, for example Sesame Street Elmo Guitar and Kawasaki Discman. He calls it circuit bending.
Thompson began the work 17 years back, adding a sequencer to manage the lights, which flash over time towards the music, and mixers to mix sounds and sequencers to manage the lights, which flash over time towards the music. His collaborator is Micah Yarborough of Fort Worth.
“I’ve been at TI for ten years with no one here understood Used to do this,” Thompson stated. Recently, the duo performed their music in the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas.
Thompson is among about 30 TI employees who a week ago demonstrated business inventions in the semiconductor company’s second annual "DIY with TI" event at its Dallas headquarters. The projects involve TI parts, for example chips and sensors, or items that use TI technology.
Last Friday, I highlighted four TI DIY projects inside a blog publish. Now, I am adding yet another project at 9 a.m. every day. Tomorrow, I’ll feature TI intern Kristen Villemez’s party glasses.
