Abstract

We introduce the technique of "Bit Bending," a particularly fertile technique for circuit bending which involves short circuits and manipulations upon digital serial information. We present a justification for computer modeling of circuit-bent instruments, with deference to the movement's aversion to "theory-true" design and associations with chance discovery. To facilitate software modeling of Bit Bending, we also present a software library for modeling certain classes of digital integrated circuits. A synthesis architecture case study (frequency modulation via numerically controlled oscillators) demonstrates software modeling of Bit Bending in action.
