It's on again as Alex Inglizian rocks a presentation/workshop on "integrating hacked, modified, and circuit bent devices into a tempo synced electronic music system." This is your chance to get your hands dirty @ dorkbot Chicago and dig into a fresh plate of Chicago style dirty circuit bending! As always, dorkbot Chicago is FREE (as in pizza and beer, and also free as in speech and software)!

What is a "dorkbot"?! The idea of the international dorkbot network is "people doing strange things with electricity" and meeting in informal, friendly environments to discuss their projects. These projects could include hardware hacks, New Media Art projects, creative code, circuit bent musical instruments or wild DIY garage science!

Thanks to Delaney Hall for producing this wonderful little radio piece about circuit bending in Chicago. Featuring me and Patrick McCarthy & Tommy Stephenson from Roth Mobot. The section titled 'Bent' begins at 14:00 min into the show. Enjoy.
Experiments with using arduino as a CV/Gate interface for analog synthesizers. Controlled via max/MSP step sequencer communicating w/ arduino via SimpleMessageSystem. Output from arduino is PWM and filtered with a simple RC circuit for a smooth +5 volts CV pitch control.
inspired by Robin Price's midi-CV box.
