bent instrument :: trendmaster concierge

a couple months ago i picked up this translation device at a flea market, while hunting for things to bend with chia. one dollar only. the device is circa 1990; twenty button phrases to help you on your travels if you don't want to use a dictionary. i finally got around to bending the instrument. this is officially my first clean package instrument bend. very primitive bend, but so much fun. using the basic theories i learned at the bent festival, i added two bends: a body contact that slows the samples down, and a potentiometer that sets the high frequency that the samples speed up to. in the future, i'm gonna add more to this instrument but for right now, the simple bends serve their purpose. the plan is to use a couple of bent instruments in the alias pail set under development.[ watch video]
