Tactile Noise May 7th, 10am – 7pm
workshop on low-tech touch-reactive synthesizers.
In this workshop participants built a small noise machine able to produce a variety unexpected tones and textures, depending on the position, humidity and pressure of the fingers touching the instrument's contact-points.
By the end of the workshop, participants took home an instrument guaranteed to put and end to the peace of canine, feline and human cohabitants, and a basic knowledge of electronics and circuit building.
All ages and levels of experience were welcomed.
