Sat Feb 06, 2010 00:00 - Fri Feb 05, 2010

Still mining the rich material from our "Digital Developments" season over the Autumn at South Hill Park, UK - the new Gene Pool podcast showcases material recorded during our "Circuit-Bending" weekend from late-November.

We speak with workshop leader, artist and hardware hacker Stu "ASMO" Smith about the "parallel world of sounds" brought to light in his projects, research and development time at STEIM in Amsterdam, and performing a concert in the National Space Centre's Planetarium. We also hear from some of the weekend participants before cutting into a chunk of the final sonic freak-out performance, with the newly minted Atari Punk Console instruments being put through their paces.
