The thing at the top? Photographer JD Hancock explains:

Austin, Texas electronic super-scientist Dr. Bleep (aka John-Mike Reed) was kind enough to let me borrow one of his amazing audio/visual creations, a “Thingamagoop 2” to be specific. It lights up, it makes music and sound, it looks fantastic, and all of the knobs and switches actually do stuff. The Thingamagoop 2 is no longer being produced, so I am so grateful that I got to put one in front of my camera!
