No experience necessary!  Circuit bending is a fun, easy, and low-stress way to explore circuits and electronics, and you don’t need to know much about either to successfully create unique musical instruments.

What to bring:

  • A couple of (working) electronic toys to eviscerate.  Cheap keyboards and other toys that sing or talk or make noises (battery operated only) can be found at thrift stores for just a few dollars.  Goodwill in Folsom has lots of castoff, inexpensive electronic noisemaking toys, fairly begging to be transformed (upcycled?) into one-of-a-kind mechanisms of sound art.  Don’t forget the batteries!
  • A small Phillips screwdriver.  Precision screwdrivers (the really small ones) are often useful, and needle nose pliers sometimes can be helpful.
  • A willingness to explore, tinker, and be creative.

We’ll have some electronic toys, batteries and tools you can borrow if you forget something.
