Event description

Description

Have you wondered how speakers really work? Would you like to modify your old amplifiers to create a unique sound? Are you ready to create a new instrument that's uniquely yours?

Take a look inside, speakers, amplifiers, oscillators, and sequences. Learn how these electronics really work and how to create a sound that's uniquely yours. This two-day workshop provides a foundation in audio electronics and gives sound makers practical tips on creating new instruments. Discussions on sound design and acoustics will be followed by hands-on workshopping. Students will build one or more sound emitting devices depending on skill and interest and will be able to take home whatever they build at no extra cost :)

No previous electronic or sound experience required.


The class is taught by Ezer Longinus and Merche Blasco.

Ezer is a tinkerer and layabout that occasionally dabbles in music. He holds degrees in technology and music from Bard College and New York University. He lives in New York City with one fancy lady and two/three cats and makes electronic projects for a living.

Merche (http://half-half.es/) is an interdisciplinary artist and composer based in New York. Her practice revolves around building new instruments for electronic music performance, orchestrating participatory sound performances in public spaces, and electroacoustic improvisation. She has presented her performances and installations at NIME conferences, Sonar Festival (Barcelona), Make Music NY, SONIC Festival (NYC), Mapping Festival (Geneva), Queens Museum of Art (NYC), Harvestworks (NYC) and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Santiago, Chile, among others. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Wire magazine.
