Circuit Bent Casio SK-8, Grillo Parlante
January 23rd, 2007 - Link

A new bent Casio SK-8 is available for sale. As a circuit bending target, the SK-8 is perhaps superior to both the SK-1 and SK-5. The SK-8 has lots of good chaotic sounds, multiple sample memory, plus “Easter egg” individual drum sounds.

A commissioned bent Grillo Parlante (Italian Speak & Spell) has also been posted.

Tonight the Wexner Center hosted a screening of 8 Bit. The scope of the documentary is much wider than the title indicates. Filmmakers Marcin Ramocki and Justin Strawhand cover a lot of ground, including chiptunes, the demo scene, ROM hacking, machinima, and data art.
