The Benders Circuit is a documentary, currently in production, about the underground audio-visual performance scene in and around Los Angeles, California.
This movie features performing artists in the Los Angeles area who use customized electronics and/or modular synthesizers to create unique audio-visual experiences.
Producers Eric Zimmerman & Angela Izzo are funding production of the documentary via an IndieGoGo project.
Here’s what they have to say about the project:
The mainstream needs to be challenged. This movement is a totally independent and original scene, and although not driven by commercial concerns, sustains itself and keeps growing creatively. Although unknown to much of the outside world, these performing artists are on the cutting edge of what’s happening in underground art culture.
We have been shooting shows and interviews for two years, and are working to include as many acts as possible in this first release. It’s time to share this with the world. You can help us to complete the shooting, editing, and post production for this documentary with your contribution to make this happen.
The documentary is being made available to backers for US $20 in digital form and $40 for the DVD. See the project site for details.
