11th Nov 2012, Circuit bending workshop
A new session in our series of circuit bending / hacking sound toys workshops.
Date/time: Sunday 11th Nov, 2 pm to 7 pm
Location: London Music Hackspace (Unit 30). Cremer Business Centre, 37 Cremer Street. London E2 8HD
Materials/fee: Materials and components are included and will be provided for all participants, there is a fee of £25.
Learn the necessary techniques to turn hackable toys into useful sound devices, electronic instruments or, who knows, sound sculptures perhaps. This will be a practical, hands-on workshop, including an introduction to the most easy and effective bending techniques and a presentation about instrument designs and musicians using hacked equipment. Participants will have the opportunity of testing and hacking new projects. Everyone is welcome to bring their own devices for bending, otherwise hackable toys will be available.
The workshop will be lead by Tasos Stamou, a dedicated circuit bender and an instrument modifier/designer. He has been utilizing his hacked creations into various performances (such as at the BENT festival in NYC) and recordings (labels: Absurd, Triple Bath, Errorcode). He is currently concentrated into video-bending and DIY modular synthesizer research and designs. More info: www.tasosstamou.com http://stamouinstruments.blogspot.co.uk/
