A puppet microphone jam synth.


'Lipstick' is a set of automaton puppet lips that 'talk' based on vocal input and that plays notes based on the buttons you press. Using granular synthesis, vocoder effects, and formant synthesis, 'Lipstick' turns your voice into a synthesizer.

It's a microphone stand meets a bass clarinet meets the muppets.
