OK, I hit google and usenet, no luck.

WTF is "ROM bending"?

circuit bending of a cartridge game.
this is a tutorial: http://www.anti-theory.com/soundart/circuitbend/

"Circuit-bending is an electronic art which implements creative audio short-circuiting."

Im really sorry, but why would anyone with even the slightest intelligence want to waste it on this? Help cure a terminal disease or feed the homeless.

I´ve a question: i´ve a master system at home i ´d like to circuit bendit. Did you experiment circuit bending the cartridge game inside the master system or before you put it in the master sistem?

jumpstart said...

i've circuit bent the cartridge game directly inside the master system II. be careful, it could be dangerous. from reed ghazala's tutorial: "Trying to circuit-bend any device operating on the 'house-current' of your wall outlet is OUT OF THE QUESTION!!! This holds true even in the instance of AC adapters. Circuit-bending is for BATTERY-POWERED CIRCUITS ONLY."

if you know a bit of electronic and if you really want to do it take some precautions.
