Circuit-bending, or bending for short, is a method by which an electronic toy or a device such as a keyboard is short-circuited and modified to create an entirely different sound, which is often alien or otherworldly. Circuitbent devices have found their way into popular electronic music, and can be heard in songs by contemporary artists including Peter Gabriel, DEVO, and Nine Inch Nails.

In Circuit-Bending: Build Your Own Alien Instruments (Wiley; August 2005; $29.99), circuit-bending creator Reed Ghazala reveals the “secrets of the bend.” This book, part of the ExtremeTech series from Wiley, covers the tools of the trade, shows how to build a bending workshop, and reveals secrets that will have readers of all levels making sweet music in no time. Covers basic bends, body contacts, and other bending skills, as well as ways to create bent instruments from a variety of popular toys and electronic devices.
