In this weeks meeting we invited special guest speaker Neight Hardman, who is proficient in the circuit bending process. He brought in a few sound toys that had been circuit bent and showed us how they work. He also disassembled a new non-circuit bent toy and gave us a demonstration on how the modifications are done from start to finish. He brought in a few parts such as switches, pots and resistors that he uses to make these modifications to the toys. These devices once used as toy keyboards are now used for creative sound design in the music he creates.
