Circuit Bending Documentary and a New Website

Dr Rek has updated Absurdity.biz to feature a blog and better ordering options for the Bent Festival DVDs. The most recent of which is the 2008 Bent Festival in Minneapolis. He was also kind enough to send me a copy of the DVD. Having been at the Festival in Minneapolis I think the Documentary captured the mood very well, stage setups were very nice with great lighting on the performers. Through out the event Rek would pull people behind closed doors for “The Interview” and now the secrets of what happened are revealed on this DVD. It is extremely cool to see fellow circuit benders talking about their influences, discoveries, and thoughts on the subject. Great Job!
