Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Circuit Bending is the art of deconstructing what would usually be considered a disposable or low value piece of electronics and modifying it to be a one-of-a-kind 21st century piece of functional art. Have you ever heard of “circuit bending”? Maybe you really HAVEN’T, but want to get involved and just wouldn’t know where to start, then we have the perfect event for you!

Maybe you have circuit bent before, and consider yourself a soldering iron wizard… Amazing! We have the perfect event for you as well! Do you get what we are saying over here? Doesn’t matter if you have been up-cycling and circuit bending for years or have never tried, but have always wondered what it was all about… you belong at Dr. Blankenstein’s Circuit Bending Hack-A-Thon Workshop!

Please bring a battery-powered sound making device which was either purchased at a second hand store, thrift store, swap meet etc for no more than $10 OR something you have laying around your house that would have probably been tossed in the trash eventually. anything low cost, hopefully outdated, and that produces sound… leave your smart devices at home for this one, there will be no smart phone hacking at this event.

** If you successfully register for this workshop, please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. Those not in attendance 5-minutes before the session begins, may forfeit their spot to the next person on the waitlist.

By registering for a workshop, you acknowledge that Moogfest may share your email address with the instructor for the purpose of planning and coordinating this event.
