Synth Making & e-textiles Workshop with PRRRRRT

— BEEF, Pennywell Studios
Build a small synth that can be controlled with e-textiles and/or light
time:13:00
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Workshop runs 1pm - 5pm

Come and warm your hands by the soldering iron for a winter afternoon of synth building with PRRRRRT. The "Nom Nom Nand Nor" Synth is a tiny but powerful 4xNand gate synth using a 4093 chip. By adding sensors, and combining with e-textiles, this simple synth can become a light responsive musical instrument housed inside a soft toy, customised to each person’s creative choices. You will leave BEEF with a completely unique, strange little instrument to keep for yourself or give away as a cacophonous gift.

This workshop does not require prior technical experience. Our aim is to make DIY electronic music more accessible and to have fun making. Participants will solder and assemble their own noise makers, embedding them inside a soft toy (or another object of choice). PRRRRRT‘s approach will be hands on, and while they will talk about the basic components of the circuit and how they are making and changing the sound; the main focus will be on learning through listening. The synths will all sound a bit different depending on the choices people make during the workshop.

Towards the end of the afternoon we will have time to play our synths together through some loudspeakers and you will hear that the "Nom Nom Nand Nor" synth has a very boisterous voice for such a little thing!

Bring:
A soft toy or small object you would like to embed the synth into (the synth is approx. 5/5cm with appendages)
A torch or bike-light to control your synth.
