Weird Techniques

Can someone give me some weird techniques, on all instruments, to procure some weird sounds,

an example of what i mean is using a certain effect or multiple amount of effects: like Delay and Harmonizer and solos to get a weird tone.

The reason for this post is i am trying to make some dissonant weirdness in my music and i want to add some cool stuff and if anyone knows any techniques thanks.

Delay + (Flanger/Chorus) + Trem abuse is pretty nice.
Or, if you've got something that can do automatic Ring modulation, that + Dist + Fading notes in and out + delay is also quite sweet.

modulation effects.... like chorus, flanger and phaser..... when set to extreme settings will give you all sorts of cool sci fi sounds... like a lazer ray gun off of your favorite kids cartoon.
a great pedal for those ring mod fx is the ibanez cf7...

if you want dissonance, try to use an intelligent pitch shifter or harmonizer set at dissonant intervals such as tri-tones(augmented 4th's/diminished 5th), major 7th's, and minor 2nd's...

also, filter effects are very fun for cool sounds, the most common are wah's... but if you buy an envelope filter pedal or two you can get sounds you would think never existed.

pinch harmonics are cool....

ebow....

some kinds of eletrical devices(remotes, toy guns, cell phones) especially ones with speakers. can make cool fx when you put them up to your pickups(doesnt work well with noise suppressors)....

distortion/fuzz/o.d. always helps....

I'd like to know how Wojtek does the squiggly-sounding effect in some of his Luciferion songs. Maybe it's just a wah + sliding bends with good distortion or something, but it's a great sound.

Example: 1:01 - 1:03, Destroying By Will.

Example: 1:42 - 1:44, New World To See

My weird Pinch Harmonic styles

I Pinch harmonic by tapping the string above the neck humbucker with my first finger (i hold the pick like \m/ in my 2nd and 3rd fingers very very lightly with my thumb) i can slide them up and down the fretboard and the harmonic changes accordingly.

1) 2h3g(radual bend) p2 bend p1 is one of my thigns i do on the low E string it sounds pretty wicked thought id add that

Yeh, I like doing weird pinch harmonic things. Like doing PH power chords. Those sound weird.

ohh my gawd !!! you're one of the VERY few people i know to use that technique for a pinch...me being one of them.

using this technique, try pinching at different positions while on the same fret...that gives different sounds !
