Bent Festival To Feature Home-Made Electronics, Workshops, Kanye?
Each year, The Tank invites benders from across the country and around the globe to perform concerts with their circuit bent instruments, to teach workshops to adults and children alike, and to generally descend on our fair city for a week of sharing and showing off their skills. This year the festival is being expanded to include not only New York, but Los Angeles and Minneapolis as well.
If you have the least bit of curiosity about electronics or electronic music, or if you’ve ever just really wanted to rip your toys apart, this festival is for you. Each day we will have open studios with expert benders on hand to help you get started. There will be installation artists building circuit-bent artwork throughout the spaces in each city. There will be a full schedule of in-depth workshops and nightly concerts of some of the best circuit benders in the world. It is genuinely fun for the whole family. You will have a blast.
If you’re a schoolteacher in any of these three cities, I strongly suggest hooking up a field trip.
