circuit bending includes a very specific definition. Modification goes way past the scope from the randomness based on circuit bending and includes using electronics theory, added electronic circuitry, and real life electronics manufacturing experience to create modified instruments seem just like they are able to and become as stable as they can. I consider our instruments to become modified not circuit bent.Would you still offer switched versions? – On units in which a patchbay has shown to be stable without crashing I’d always recommend a patchbay. Having a patchbay you receive much more sonic modification options and greater mechanical reliability than you’d having a switched version. With this being stated certain modifications still require switches for stability. For those who have questions please email.
“Circuit Bending may be the creative recycling of common discarded technology, frequently children’s toys, by opening the unit and soldering in new connections to produce unique musical and video instruments.” – Roth Mobot
Why is circuit bending so awesome is the fact that Anybody can perform it! You just need curiosity, a screwdriver, along with a readiness to experiment. Circuit bending is really a gateway into electronics, art, music, and making!
What’s the Circuit Benders’ Ball Nashville?
The Circuit Benders’ Ball is really a daylong symposium focused on the skill of the curvature, happening on Saturday, September, 29th. It’ll feature two stages, more than a dozen performers, an interactive gallery, and workshops. Workshops 10am-7pm. Music 8pm-1am. Our inspirations would be the multi-city Bent Festival, The Fuse Factory in Columbus, OH, the eSymposium in Chicago, Illinois, and, obviously, Reed Ghazala, the daddy of circuit-bending!
We’ve asked circuit bent artists from Tennessee and beyond to do and lead electronic workshops. The mid-day workshops are available to any age and all sorts of amounts of experience. At night, experimental musicians and seem artists will work with circuit bent instruments, custom-made electronics, and/or battery-powered electronics. Genres will vary from ambient soundscapes to aleatoric noise to EDM influenced grooves.
So: if you’re into (or just interested in) experimental music, making, electronics, art, DIY, hacking, and sonic mayhem, the wedding is perfect for you!
The all-day event will occur on Saturday, September 29th, 2012 at Brick Factory Nashville, a hackerspace, community workshop, educational facility, gallery, and gratifaction space.
