Moog Music has announced its 6th Annual Moog Circuit Bending Challenge, a contest in which you are challenged to circuit bend an existing device to create a unique musical instrument.
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.
Entrants will create and post videos on YouTube featuring their completed instruments and documenting the process of their creation. Moog will select three finalists and invite them to showcase their creations at Moogfest in May of 2017 where judges will determine a winner of the contest.
Three finalists will be chosen from all entries submitted by April 3rd, 2017. The finalists will receive passes to Moogfest 2017 as well as a Moog merch package.
The winner will be chosen on the final day of Moogfest 2017, with a Minimoog Model D as the grand prize.
