Man electrocutes his face in the name of music

Watch his tuneful twitching
We've heard about people suffering for their art, but this is just ridiculous.
In a new video, a man by the name of Daito Manabe can be seen using a system that uses electric pulses to stimulate his facial muscles.
Simultaneously, these pulses seem to be triggering sounds on a computer – our old friend Max/MSP is probably involved somewhere along the line.
We're not sure where this project might be heading next – is this going to some kind of performance tool? – but we'll certainly keep an eye on it.
Suffice to say, trying something similar at home is not recommended.
