Assuming no technical background whatsoever, this workshop guides the participants through a series of simple sound-producing electronic construction projects that fill gaps in today’s computer-centric world of music production. The projects covered will include:
A modest synthesizer using nothing more than a battery, a loudspeaker and some clip leads
A contact mike for amplifying tiny acoustic sounds of springs, twigs, melting ice and more.
A coil pickup that sniffs out the electromagnetic fields that surround us, emanating from kitchen appliances, computers, ATMs and subway trains.
Nicolas Collins is Professor at he School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and author of Handmade Electronic Music – The Art of Hardware Hacking a very influential book in emerging electronic music. Nicolas Collins will be also in conversation with Christian Marclay.
