I got into circuit bending around 2001 as a way of creating unique
instruments that offer a more experimental approach than stuff you can buy in shops.
I like to design interfaces that are playable both intuitively and expressively
in live situations while being versatile enough to offer a great range of sounds for
studio use or as sample fodder.
While I usually build most of my gear for personal use, I also do commissions. If you're interested in buying something I've built, please drop me an email: derwarst[zoing]der-warst[plop]de
I started working on video equipment as a part of my diploma in Media Art at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach, Germany, in 2007. This has added a whole new layer to my performances and sparked a general interest in video synthesis not using boring old computers.
Not all my hacks are audio or video related. Here's the fun projects, art stuff, and practical hacks that don't fit in the other two categories.
