Each year during Moogfest we celebrate the electronic art of circuit-bending with the annual Moog Music Circuit Bending Challenge. Contestants from around the globe submitted videos with devices they took to the outer limits of creative alteration, creating altogether new inventions from various consumer electronics.

Out of the many fantastic selections we received we’ve selected 3 finalists for our panel of expert judges to select from. The judges will be James of Simian Mobile Disco, John Paul Titlow of Fast Company, and Alex Rosson, Audio Director at Shinola.

The finalists will be in attendance at Moogfest with their inventions in tow, and will be competing for the chance to win a Moog MiniMoog. Join us at 1pm on Saturday, May 20th to witness the exciting results.
