Makey Makey Theatrical Neurosurgery

Taking inspiration from the medical memoir 'A Journey Round My Skull' we've recreated the sound of brain surgery for an audience cast as a collective patient.
Materials: Makey Makey kit, table, brain surgery inspiration (look for craniotomy videos), garden wire & electrical tape, a laptop & USB extension cable, surgeons gown, speakers, copper pipe bushes
Software: Soundplant

Things to try:
You can develop your theatrical neurosurgery by adding stage lighting or conductive props so you can cue other sound effects - for instance, drink from a cup of water to cue the sound of glasses smashing.
