CIRCUIT BENDING is the technical manipulation of low voltage devices to create musical instruments or experimental sound generators. With free style and random bases. NOISE makers!
The technique consists of connecting and modifying various electronic components in a device to remount them to sound experiments. The term Circuit Bending was coined by Reed Ghazala in the 60s, one of the pioneers of this technology. Sure there were more who did the same, but not named ….
The workshop consists of a shorter theoretical review of what Circuit Bending is and the materials needed and a practical exercise.

We will particularly focus on our own speaking voices – what do they feel like, physically and emotionally, as well as what they sound like – and use this as a jumping-off point for creative, vocal responses.
No previous musical or theatrical experience necessary!
