Videos of Mike Ford's Circuit Bent Devices In Action
By James Grahame
When we last caught up with Mike Ford he had just posted images of his fantastic circuit bent sculptures as a flickr set. Since photos don't tell the full story, he created a series of short videos to demonstrate these demented shiny things in action.
Check out the sonic mayhem of 'all hands man your battlestations,' a dual beatbox/sound effects device. Perhaps you'd prefer the 'homage to r a moog' micro synth with two frequency channels, two analog delay units and a salvaged cpu audio amp circuit? Or maybe the effervescent simplicity of radio free jupiter?
Readers in the UK should watch for a two page spread featuring Mike's work in the February edition of Future Music. He tells me that the magazine ships with a cover DVD which might feature high-rez video of these machines in action.
