The BPOW festival in Portland, organized by Molecule Synth‘s Travis Feldman, celebrates circuit bending and electronic music.

BPOW!!! (Battery Powered Orchestra Workshop) is the First Annual Interactive Electronic Arts Festival in Portland, Oregon dedicated to the art of salvaged sound. Encompassing two days of workshops, performances and culminating in a DIY public jam session, BPOW!!! wants to show Portland that even the simplest circuit configurations can bring forth unprecedented levels of ROCK.

The festival takes place this weekend, August 10-11, 11am-10pm. Tickets may be purchased through Kickstarter.
