RIDERS OF THE LOST CURRENT

Riders Of The Lost Current is an experimental music and performance group, who uses circuit bended instruments made out of old, recycled children's toys to create ambient music. The group was founded by Jonne Pitkänen and Markku Metso in 2011.

Circuit bending is the creative short-circuiting of electronic devices such as low voltage, battery-powered guitar effects, children's toys and small digital synthesizers to create new musical or visual instruments and sound generators.

Emphasizing spontaneity and randomness, the techniques of circuit bending have been commonly associated with noise music, though many more conventional contemporary musicians and musical groups have been known to experiment with "bent" instruments. Circuit bending usually involves dismantling the machine and adding components such as switches and potentiometers that alter the circuit.

In their live performances Riders of The Lost Current combines visual effects such as video projections with the sound collage created with several different bended instruments. The created music is mainly improvised, relying rather on the spontaneous feeling and movement of the atmosphere than strictly rehearsed parts, the mix of sounds varying from haunting dark ambient and drone sounds to heavy noise.
