Love mayhem? Love metal music, throttled all the way up into a “War Cry”? QWERTY keyboard ain’t quite gonna cut it. You’ll want to build your own airplane throttle force feedback controller to transmit MIDI. Hint: it might help if you’re a skilled artist and sculptor in the Visual Arts MFA program at the University of California San Diego, like Tristan Shone, aka Author and Punisher.

Tristan combined his metal music skills and his metal sculpting skills to build a controller worthy of his music. He’s got this gorgeous photo below to tease us, and promises more are coming. Now I think the next step is to raid one of those desert airplane scrap yards.

    Brilliant. Years ago I had a dream where i had a studio with a big throttle that controlled 'the bass'. if I pushed it up far enough it would vibrate the entire room, and everyone in it, in a very comical way. Live the dream.
