Bent FestivalChiptune music / experimental musician Bubblyfish has alerted us to a short documentary about the 2006 Bent Festival held last month in New York. The focus of the yearly festival is ‘circuit bending’ – creating musical instruments by creatively modifying small electronic devices such as toys, battery powered synthesizers and cheap effects units. In addition to featuring performances, the Bent Festival includes workshops where members of the public can try their hand at circuit bending. The documentary is very interesting, and viewable online! Follow the link below to check it out.
