    »Circuit bending is the creative, chance-based customization of the circuits within electronic devices such as low-voltage, battery-powered guitar effects, children’s toys and digital synthesizers to create new musical or visual instruments and sound generators.«

    Beyond traditional ways of learning electronics this course teaches basic ideas and intuitions for dealing with sound by modifying existing circuits. Participants of this course have to bring their own low voltage devices. Especially suitable are typically battery powered music toys (toy pianos, toy drums etc) that can be found cheaply on flea markets or on the internet.
