Track 6 from E.A.R.'s 1998 "Data Rape".

From the liner notes:

Circuit bending involves taking cheaply available electronic soundmaking toys (in this case mostly Texas Instruments' "Speak & Spell" human voice synthesizing toys from the late '70's, but also applicable to all sorts of keyboards, effects boxes and samplers) and adding extra wires, knobs and switches to make new connections between parts of the internal circuitry and chips. This sends data and electronic signals to previously unrelated circuit board points - inducing through a strange sort of "Data Rape"- astounding new sounds, chance evolving compositions and textures, phoneme freezing and looping, random glottal pulse and phoneme generation, complex lattice filtering and unique pitch shifting techniques.
