Event Details

Description:

Join us for an intense six-week introduction to analog electronics through an exploration of sound. This will be a hands-on workshop where you will build a variety of sound-generating and -manipulating circuits. Though this process, you will learn enough about analog electronics to be able to continue with similar work independently. You will leave not only with a number of basic signal generators, but with an entire small modular synth system.

Expected Class Outcomes:

  • Ability to read a schematic
  • Ability to breadboard electronics from schematics
  • Ability to solder and build circuits from scratch
  • An understanding of Ohm's Law and how it applies to analog circuits, as well as an understanding of the various component parts
  • A number of signal generators, filters, effects, and synth modules will have been built
  • An understanding of how to properly mix audio safely, and how to trigger sounds with other inputs.

Prerequisites:

None

Materials Provided:

All materials will be provided, and an $80 materials cost is included in the class fee.

What to Bring:

A copy of Handmade Electronic Music: The Art of Hardware Hacking. The class will work from the exercises in this book, and build upon it as a base for later projects.

Available on Amazon.

Instructor Biography:

Jimmie Rodgers has been circuitbending since 2007. He's given talks at various hacker conferences about circuitbend, and has taught hundreds how to do it.
