Untitled for violin, circuit bent toy, and electronics

Using

Old children's electronic toy, audience participation

Year

2008

Untitled, for violin, circuit bent toy, and electronics, was an attempt to provide for audience participation in a concert hall setting. The idea was to provide an audience member with a simple, circuit bent electronic toy that he or she would then perform with a violinist on-stage. Engaging with the practice of circuit bending during a performance would hopefully encourage others to explore these techniques. Important to the score is the accompanying set of instructions, Simple Ways to Circuit Bend a Toy. The PDF below is the score itself, written originally in lilypond. If you would like the source code, as well as the special graphics I made to indicate the particular buttons to press and knobs to turn associated with the toy I used, please send me an e-mail.
