Facesiren Workshop

— Arnolfini
Run by PRRRRRT! as part of the EP/64 #64 The Grand Final Weekend
price: Headfirst Tickets

HEADFIRST STAFF PICK

“Build a creepy light-sensitive synth you can wear on your face, from scratch! Need we say more.”
Join the Headfirst mailinglist for recommendations.

Information:

Join DIY noise team PRRRRRT! to build a light-controlled drone synth that you can wear on your face. Play electronic facesirens by turning your head towards the sun, a flickering street lamp or a phone torch. Or gather around a fire at midnight for a synchronised face theremin dance ritual.

Bristol based PRRRRRT! members Becca Rose and Jasmine Butt will be on hand to solder and assemble this small and simple yet undeniably unnerving synth.This workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as intermediate participants. We will talk you through the basics of the components and circuitry we will be using, as well as giving you a soldering masterclass. There will be an opportunity to decorate your facesirens, or you can leave them blank and emotionless to keep things eerie.

This workshop runs 11am - 2pm. All materials and equipment provided.
