It looks like NYC is not the only place with a hip and happenin Experimental scene. From Detroit in 2002-2003 came a series of events entitled Crackle. Noise Musicians, Circuit Benders, MAX/MSP gurus and DJs converged to enthrall the public. The full list of Crackle installments is located here.
Not sure if there will be more, however I do hope there will.
The one pictured is the circuit bending workshop, Crackle #5
From the left we have Talking WhizKid, Altoids case Amp?, Speak and Math, with what must be some sort of an educational toy with a bunch of body contacts.
