Free Floh

Free floh is a sound performance of circuit bent toys controlled by a canoe.

The idea is to find toys from local second hand shops and bend them into the city’s river.
With this project we experience the duality between noise coming from bent toys and the tranquility of canoeing.
A journey in a circuit bent canoe During a residency on the boat Eleanore in july 2021 with for Electropixel #11 and organised by APO33 and STWST48, a discussion with SWST’s crew about our passion for circuit bending directed us to Sunday Flohmarkt in Linz. Here we found some electronic treasures, but this time they would not end up in a typical bending.

While we were bending on the boat, we came up with the idea of mixing flohmarkt toys with the water flow. Using the canoe’s elements to control sounds of the toys - such as their switches, glitching, distortion and so on.
