Biography

Qubais Reed Ghazala, an American author, photographer, composer, musician and experimental instrument builder, is recognized as the “Father of circuit bending,” having discovered the technique in 1966, pioneered it, named it, and having taught it ever since. He has built experimental instruments for many prominent musicians and media companies including Tom Waits, Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, The Rolling Stones, and MTV, among others. Ghazala’s work has been covered globally in the press and can be found being taught world-wide.

Ghazala’s work is held in the permanent collections of New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, The Guggenheim and The Whitney, as well as various galleries internationally. His influence upon creative electronic design is global, having originated the planet’s first “grassroots electronic art movement.” Reed’s work with chance art (the root of circuit-bending) also involves studies in dye migration materials[1] and Japanese suminagashi[2], as well as liquid, gel and smoke chambers, mobiles and pyrotechnics.
