This is a demo of the 555 Noisemusick kit from Maker Shed.
The 555 Timer is one of the oldest integrated circuits still available. It’s also one of the few ICs you can buy at the mall! Its hardiness — and the fact that you can drive a speaker directly from the output on pin 3 — have made it a natural choice for electronic music experiments in noise since the seventies.
The 555 Noisekit utilizes two 555 timers.
