Kokeellisen elektroniikan seura / Association of experimental electronics

Lo-tech, lo-fi, creative electronics, circuit bending and more.

Our basic idea is, that all electronic sounds are just amplification of alternating current, so any device that can be used to produce or modify the current can be used as an electronic instrument. We just take any device, open it, test it, bend it and experiment with it as long as we get it to work in a way we consider interesting.

We work mostly with electronic waste. We do that for two reasons:

1. The stuff we dig from the thrashbins sounds so much better than any pluginshit.
2. Todays digital technology -based lifestyle is not ecologically viable.  The lifespan of all devices is getting shorter and shorter, and  the amount of consumers wanting all new digital gizmos is rising exponentially. Think about it, how long can this continue?

Step out of the line, into the world of experimental electronics, the low end of all soundproduction.


THIS IS NOT RETRO, THIS IS YOUR FUTURE

15.05.2006 Now we had the change to test our bikini-wrestling sound interfase in La-Bas event last saturday. Still in beta state, but the idea is to measure the galvanic skin responce of two wrestling girls and to use the values to control the sound.
