The Joy of Toy. Kettle's Yard New Music Morning 6/5/07
Kettle's Yard has a series of concerts on a Sunday lunchtime. Kate and I had been to the Satie one which was part of the Black Mountain College exhibition. The Kettle's Yard house is such a lovely space I was eager to go to another concert. Today's billing was too fun and fabulous sounding to resist. Here's what the blurb said.

The Joy of Toy. Everyday objects are modified, burned, manipulated and mixed. Live circuit bending from Creative Music Technology at Anglia Ruskin University, curated by Richard Hoadley.

It was a fun and a mad event. Sometimes too loud for us older folk, it had a real craft-meets-electronics feel to it. I can't work out if this circuit bending phenomena is an exciting part of the craft revival and the hacking culture, or just a failure to learn proper electronics. I'm still not sure, but I had a wonderful hour listening and watching it.”
