Enter the Second Annual Moog Circuit Bending Challenge

Enter the Second Annual Moog Circuit Bending Challenge

Moog Music was born when a young Bob Moog, who considered himself a geeky, socially awkward kid with a passion for electronics and music started tinkering with electronic circuitry. As a boy, Moog built small radios, amps and three note organs in his basement workshop with his father & the rest is history. In celebration of this creative curiosity, Moog and Moogfest 2011 are sponsoring a circuit bending challenge, to honor all those that lick and stick, modify signals and jump traces.

How to Enter:

1. Procure a battery-powered sound-making device

2. Bend it by any means necessary.

3. Document the bend process and outcome with video with audio (required). The better you document, the better we can judge. All videos must be uploaded by MIDNIGHT EST on Wednesday, September 21, 2011..

4. Upload the video to YouTube and tag with  “moog music circuit bending competition 2011” and “Moogfest 2011”.
