Moogfest 2014 & Moog Music announce 4th Annual Circuit Bending Challenge

Moogfest Circuit Bending Challenge

Moogfest and Moog Music has announced a Circuit Bending Challenge, offering you a chance to win Moog’s Sub Phatty, Slim Phatty and Minitaur synthesizers and free passes to the Moogfest 2014 festival.

Moog Music was born when a young Bob Moog started tinkering with electronic circuitry. As a boy, Moog built small radios, amps, and Theremins in his basement workshop with his father and the rest is history. This experimentation with the inner workings of electronic devices to create new sounds and effects has been developed into an art form known as circuit bending.

Circuit bending is a creative medium that combines technology, sonic artistry and creativity. By altering the internal circuitry of electronic devices such as keyboards, drum machines, and children’s toys, circuit benders are able to produce new sounds not intended in the original design.

In celebration of this creative curiosity that fueled a young Bob Moog and all of those that follow in his footsteps, Moog is sponsoring its 4th Annual Circuit Bending Contest.

This year, Moog’s circuit bending contest is challenging entrants to take a battery powered device and circuit bend it into an instrument capable of creating new and unique sounds for a total budget of $70 or less.

Moog will select three finalists and invite them to showcase their creations at Moogfest in April of 2014 where Moog’s judges and the general public will decide a winner of the contest.

The deadline for submitting your entry is February 28th, 2014.

bent.fm lite – free circuit-bent synth app

Kurt James Werner and Mayank Sanganaria have released version 1.1 of bent.fm lite, a model of a circuit-bent synthesizer for iOS.

bent.fm lite

bent.fm allows the user to tweak classic circuit bending modifications like fine and octave-decimated clock bends, and experiment with more esoteric bends.

Circuit-bent distortions and algorithmic sequences can be created by (im)proper connections on the bend matrix. Reroute digital serial information through the base chip set (a numerically controlled oscillator) and extra logic gates (NAND and XOR, binary counters), and experience architecture-level bit crushing.

For anyone interested in circuit bending, glitch sounds, industrial music, and post-procedural art.

bent.fm lite for iPhone is a free download on the App Store.

Sinevibes releases Malfunction circuit-bent filter plugin for Mac

Related: , , , , Posted in news on May 31, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Sinevibes has announced the release of Malfunction, a new circuit-bent filter AudioUnit plugin for Mac.

Sinevibes Malfunction
Malfunction is a unique tool for extreme sound destruction.

This effect is based on a special low-pass filter that has been “circuit-bent” – that is, the algorithm has messed up internal connections and doesn’t operate normally. It produces a characterful, screaming distortion that is full of attitude and puts out various unpredictable but controllable buzzes and noises.

Malfunction features a flexible tempo-synchronised LFO with four waveforms, innovative per-cycle random mode and variable smoothness. It can be used to modulate the input low-pass filter, the circuit-bent filter or the output multi-mode filter – letting you easily do complex sound destruction and morphing.

With its clean colour-coded interface, Malfunction is very intuitive to work with. The logical control layout and responsive graphics make sure you always see what’s doing what without having to ever consult the user manual.

Malfunction for Mac (AU) is available to purchase for $19 USD.
