Getting Bent: Introduction to Circuit Bending

By taking apart old toys and elecronics and modifying their existing wiring, one can enjoy bizarre sounds, electronic loops, sampling, distortion, and other easy to create effects. At the end of this workshop you'll be able to identify and explore the basic components of a typical circuit board, install an output jack, switches, body contacts (and more!), and control a world of new sounds.

No previous electronics experience is required! Tools and components will be provided. Students are required to bring one or two battery powered devices to the class.
