muscle-powered sound synthesis

muscle-powered sound synthesis

In this workshop, we convert hand-crank flashlights to off-grid sound machines.

Using second-hand electric torches and scrapped electronics we will build a hurdy-gurdy synthesizer. Unlike with most electronic devices, the electric energy consumed by our synthesizer will be handmade. The movement of our body directly translates to the voltage the synthesizer receives, enabling the musician to explore soundscapes at the fringe of a working circuit. The outcomes of our efforts will be situated anywhere between musical instrument and ritualistic artifact of cacophony.

Please bring along 20 EUR to cover the material cost.

Open for any level of experience in soldering, electronics, and synthesizers.
