Circuit Bending Documentary

BENT 2004 from Derek Sajbel on Vimeo.

The nice folks at Absurdity.Biz, who are responsible for the famous Bent Festivals, have been kind enough to host a video documentary on everyone's favourite glitchtastic pastime: circuit bending. From the tried and true Speak and Spells and SK-1s to more radical things like optical glitch synthesizers and art installations that gallery visitors can tweak themselves, everything about circuit bending seems to have been covered. The above video is the product of an ongoing documentary about circuit bending, other parts of which are sold on DVD at Bent festivals. It is truly worth watching even with the long running time. It is actually an entire DVD worth of film, so popcorn is recommended.
