Event Details

Learn to use sensors to pick up vibrations, electromagnetism, and
light and turn it into sound.  Find the hidden music in everyday
objects and the environment, or listen to musical instruments and
musical electronics in a new way.  All materials are supplied;
however, please bring with you some of the following objects to play

  • Things with battery-powered electric motors - toy cars or robots,
    electric toothbrushes, milk frothers, pocket fans...
  • Things with simple electronic brains - pocket calculators, tv remote
    controls, smartphones, toy electronic keyboards or other
  • Small musical instruments of any kind - kalimbas (thumb pianos),
  • drums, wind-up music boxes, xylophones...
  • Anything that makes a cool sound that you want to hear more closely

    You'll learn to wire up piezo contact microphones and light-sensitive resistors, and to wind your own electromagnetic pickup coils.  Light

    use of hand tools, and soldering (no previous experience necessary).

    $50 + $10 materials

    This class is taught by NYC Resistor member Ranjit Bhatnagar as part
    of his Noisy Noises project, in which he spends every February making
    a new primitive musical instrument each day.

    All NYC Resistor classes are for people 18-years and up.  Sorry, minors.
