“Always the eyes watching you and the voice enveloping you. Asleep or awake, working or eating, indoors or out of doors, in the bath or in bed — no escape. Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull.” — George Orwell. 1984

Tentative Festival Dates:
New York, NY Bent Festival – April 22, 23, and 24
Proposal Deadline: December 1, 2009
Participant Notification: December 11, 2009
In keeping with the expanding interests of the community, this year we
are continuing to open the Bent Festival to performers and artists that
create their own electronics as well as to those who hack, bend, modify
and destroy them. We are currently seeking performers and artists to
participate specifically in these categories: Performers, Installation
Artists, Artwork Submissions and Workshop Instructors.
Bent Festival seeks bands and/or solo artists who incorporate home
built or circuit bent instruments or ideas in their performance. Please
email a short description of your act, along with a link to mp3s and
photos if you have them. Please do not send attachments larger than 1MB.
Bent Festival is looking for installation artists who can commit at
least 15 hours to creating site-specific pieces of art at each of the
venues during the duration of the festival. Installation artists will
be provided with space, materials, electronic equipment and tools.
Please submit via email a brief description of your installation idea
along with examples of your past work. Please be prepared to commit to
spending time in the installation space during the festival and be
prepared for a shared and at times hectic work environment. No white
In addition to installation artists, we would like to have featured art
work that fits with the spirit of the festival from people who might
not be able to join us in person or who cannot commit to working in the
space during the duration of the festival. Please submit via email
digital images or links of your work and a brief description.
Bent Festival is seeking workshop instructors to present on various
topics. Topics in previous years have included: General circuit bending
workshops for beginners and extremely technical, hands on workshops on
a particular aspect or niche of the genre. Please describe the subject
you would like to lead a workshop on and provide a one-page description
of that workshop, in addition include links or examples of your current
and past work in the field. COMPENSATION
Stipends for all festival performers, artists, and workshop leaders
will be provided. We have a limited number of travel grants available
as well. Please contact us for more information.
