Kretskortsbändning / circuit bending

I started bending in 2004, after reading Reed Ghazalas simple texts,
it was easier than I thought...


Toy gun with five or six sounds...


  Blue bender / blåbänder  

The clock resistor is bent with a simple switch.

With more info about this kind of toy (from Nic Collins book Handmade electronic music), I'll change this to a photocell or a potentiometer .. or both.


The toy-keyboard with just one tone, after bending it produces a more high-frequency sound..
and with two touch sensitive cables one can do analogsynth-like sounds.
