conductive paint experiment

Over the holidays i have become fascinated with different ways to conduct electricity, more  importantly creative ways of making circuits.  Having explored the way in which circuits can be sewn onto fabric, I continued to research other methods when i came across conductive paint.  I had known about this concept for a while now but was amazed at the level of creativeness that could be achieved.  Calvin Harris (who I'm not a fan of) was approached by what he calls 'boffins' aka designers from London who introduced him to the concept of creating music with such conductive (or as Calvin says 'connective' he really has no clue) paint.  The videos below show the way in which the project was made and are really good.  Shame the same thing can't be said for Mr Harris' music......
