Don’t try to adjust your television set because Kanye West’s music video is deliberately glitchy. The director of this video is intentionally dipping into some experimental video techniques of data-bending or datamoshing. The glitchy video is morphed into live action shots in abstract overlays. Not bad, interesting to see how this noise stuff is getting blended with the pop culture.

While browsing for something new to post I came across a new mod on the Gieskes.NL website. This time we have a circuit bent Sega Master System II with an RCA patchbay. Gijs was also nice enough to post a schematic refering to the IC which the patchbay was wired to. There are stills as well as some really neat videos on the site. It looks like certain patches only distort the scenes and not the actual characters or gameplay. Great for lofi visuals!
A Kaoss pad like device entitled Musical Blackboard was built by Ryan Avery and can be seen in action with this very educational video. The metal sheet interface is used as a sensor for reading body capacitance based on the hand position. The readings are done utilizing a circuit published by the delayed John Simonton of PAIA. Pic microcontroller is then used for processing the values and converting them a stream of serial data that triggers a 40 pin parallel switch circuit. The result is a burst of bends being articulated by the hand movements on the surface of this board. Pure circuit bent/pic microcontroller goodness! More images and the project page is located here. Enjoy.
