Prolific music hacker Brian Green is looking for benders and others interested in collaborative circuit bending projects:
Ive been throwing this idea around for a few days, I really like the idea of social colaberations so i decided i would like to start one with circuit benders.
The idea is im going to pick a toy and do something to it, and make 1-5 loops out of it using the mod made then i will then pick someone off the list and send it to them and they will do the same thing, so on and so on
Then after we have been through everyone on the list the unit will come back to me and im going to make a big loop pack using everyones loops made durning the process and some other ones ill make running the unit through different things. The loop pack will then be posted for download.
The reason the unit is coming back to me is so i can make a lot of one shots and just dig for sounds that were left out during the colab so that we can get every little sound out of it for the sample pack.
After the loops are up i would like everyone who had the unit to make a track for a compilation.
Sounds like it could be an interesting project. Contact Green via his site, if you are interested in participating.
Check out Green’s YouTube channel, too, for examples of his creative circuit bending and audio hacking.
