artist : Strange Attractor vs. Disinformation
A collaboration between sound art project DISINFORMATION and STRANGE ATTRACTOR journal editor Mark Pilkington, 'CIRCUIT BLASTING' came about as a result of an experiment to see whether it might be possible to use vintage, high-voltage electromedical apparatus to trigger spontaneous sounds in toy electronic keyboards.
"Mark Pilkington is doing an extreme sports take on circuit bending, blasting them with high voltage nastiness from Victorian style electrical experiment kit." THE GUARDIAN
"Disinformation has been researching and documenting sonic phenomena for a decade now, capturing the sounds of atmospheric and geomagnetic disturbances with customised radio equipment. The subsequent application of a bare minimum of processing serves to clarify the basic signal rather than shape it to some artistic end, to turn it into music..." THE WIRE
