BEATRIX*JAR PERFORMANCES
 
+
Celebrate a night of new sound that will change your idea of music forever! (Sarah Carter, The Buchtelite – Akron) Singular Sound Art Duo Beatrix*JAR are irresistible. “Armed with a soldering iron, cursory knowledge of circuitry and an unflappable DIY ethic, nearly anyone can transform a banal children’s toy into a glitching sputtering objet d’art. Beatrix*JAR have mastered both the art and craft, creating a dizzyingly original noise from those gadgets normally resigned to attics, swap meets and eBay. In their hand’s you’ll not have the capacity to resist.” (L. Young, Free Times – Columbia, SC)

“The Speak & Spells talk, sing, and laugh (a noise that is somehow more harrowing than amusing), and the
 
beats resemble a stripped-down Daft Punk as Beatrix (Bianca Pettis) and JAR (Jacob Aaron Roske) push
 
buttons, twist wires, play with your emotions, and generally seem like the embodiment of a hipster glee club as
 
they implore the audience to dance, cheer them on, and trade coy glances at each other on their way to another
 
victory.” – Pat O'Brien, City Pages - Minneapolis, MN
 
 
 
Performance features a bunch of hacked devices, including stereo Speak & Spells.

CIRCUIT BENDING WORKSHOPS
 
 
 
Hands-On Circuit Bending releases your sonic boundaries and transforms your perception of sound. Workshop participants take apart battery-powered sound devices and manipulate the circuit board to coax unusual new sounds the manufacturer never intended. A direct result of experimentation and play circuit bending is instantaneous and anyone can do it.

Plan is to ask for a $15 donation to cover cost of parts and other expenses. Participants can bring their own toys. Might be good to organize a safari to buy cheap electronic toys in the neighborhood.

It's an intensive workshop, suitable for adults and young people 14+ years. Everyone walks away with a newly refreshed strange-sounding device.
