So I created a Google Alert whenever there is a news article with the term “circuit bending” in it. The majority of articles seem pretty flat and only mention circuit bending in passing. More interesting articles were on the footsteps of the Bent Festival. Here are some of the ones I found decent.
Love and Circuits Compilation on Cardboard Records featuring 57 artists attempting to capture America’s current musical underground sound, which includes circuit bending. Here is a link to Love and Circuits on Amazon.
Getting Bent – an unfortunate article title from NYC Press Blog. This was published after Day 1 of the NYC Bent Festival and includes some interesting anecdotes, my favorite is about wanting to buy a Thingamagoop and not wanting to pay $100 for it.
Wired Magazine’s mention of the Circuit Bending Festival in Minneapolis and introduction to lots and lots of pictures taken by Jeremy Pavleck.
Twin Cities Daily Planet published a very good article about the Bent Festival in Minneapolis, actually had someone go enjoy the event and the workshops, instead of gripping about prices.
Scientific American did a short bleep, nothing spectacular.
