Circuit bending enables artists to work with complex circuitry without any prior knowledge of electronics in order to create works spanning a variety of artistic media. By adding new variables we can transform and customize circuits that would be too dificult for most of us to build from the ground up. We will cover all aspects to get you started with circuit bending, from prying open your first case to putting the knobs on a completed project. Bring 1 or 2 circuits to bend and any parts or modifying elements that you would like to use (we will have some modifiers on hand). Only units that are battery powered will be allowed for bending. No AC adapters or AC powered devices. Here are some ideas for circuit bending starting points: keyboards, radios, answering machines, portable televisions and tape decks.
