Scrubber Fox & DJ Stuff: Repurposing of Legacy Equipment (Practical Workshop)

Scrubber Fox and DJ Stuff are audiovisual artists and hardware bend-makers. Using home-built modifications and circuit-bending techniques, it is possible to take antiquated and obsolete electronic equipment such video game consoles (e.g. Megadrives, NES, Atari 2600) and turn them into AV engines, using the existing sound and graphic chips within them.

Such hardware can then be utilised as an “instrument” for avant-garde music and visual generation. They can also host a session to build your own AudioVisual mixer to keep which provides a simple non-invasive portal into equipment manipulation.
