About the Author

Reed Ghazala developed the technique of circuit-bending in 1967, following the chance encounter of a transistorized amplifier with an unidentified object in his desk drawer. He can often be found writing music, sculpting, taking photos, hunting mushrooms, building things that fly, or indulging in other creative pursuits as befits a true Renaissance man.
