The sixth festival of experimental electronic music and visual arts organized by the platform Störung will start next Thursday 14th of April offering us, during three days, the performances of outstanding national and international artists of the electronic and experimental scene.

This festival wants to offer the audience the chance of getting to know in detail different tendencies of the electronic music scene, continuing the work that the multidisciplinary platform Störung has been doing since 2006.

On the 12th of March the program of the event was officially presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (MACBA) and was followed by the audiovisual performance of Francisco López: one of great artists related to this project.

Workshop Circuit Bending
Workshop: Circuit Bending’s introduction and immersion

Circuit Bending is the creative and innovative modification, based on short-circuiting, of low voltage electronic devices (toys, pedals, etc.), with the purpose of creating new electronic instruments and sound generators.

The aim of this workshop is to provide each participant with the necessary electronic knowledge (theoretical and practical) to practice Circuit Bending. We will focus on tone modification and circuit speed. The first three hours will be devoted to theoretical aspects, so the participant acquires the necessary knowledge. After that we will open a toy or device, to expose the circuit and start working on the tone modification and speed of the system. The participant will understand and get used to circuits, demystifing electronics and will feel comfortable intervening.

Each participant must bring the toy or electronic device he wishes to modify following Circuit Bending techniques. These must work on low voltage batteries (9 volts maximum).

The registration fee includes the electronic components necessary to carry out the modifications, and the necessary tools.
