Earth has one moon. Here's a short film about the Solar System made with a circuit-bent Interactive Solar System, fitted with a pitch control and current starve control.

Try these simple bends for yourself. A red wire leads from the middle of the battery pack to the main green circuit board. Snip the wire in the middle and insert a 10K potentiometer between both ends. Lowers values might work better. This control acts as a current starve, which pitches the circuit down while adding glitches.

Replace resistor R22 on the brown circuit board with a 680K resistor in line with a 500K potentiometer. This resistor controls the clock circuit for the black blob CPU. The original value was 910K, so the new resistors allow for higher and lower pitches.
