DIY Chance Sequencer

Inspired by the hacking & bending i have seen in Finland on my recent trip i had an idea to build a sequencer from a household clock. This is a prototype of that idea, with possibly 60 steps or more likely a random number. The base is a mesh/carpet of svhs tape with a wire attached too the start, this acts as a resistor. The other point of the connection is attached to the arms of the clock which have stray conductive thread hanging off them. when the clock ticks it drags the conductive thread over the video tape thus making connections and sequencing the pitch of the oscillator is a pretty messy way.
