Noise Transmission Device Workshop

Electronic music Workshop by Zedde Francesco
19:00
WORM

Noise Transmission Device Workshop, guided collective improvisation of a TERROR TRANSMISSION DEVICES orchestra!

WHAT:
The workshop is designed as a practical and theoretical introduction to some techniques and strategies of modern experimental music, the talk includes a few historical examples and philosophical considerations on the relationship between a musician and an instrument. Noise music and radical improvisation topics will be explained in a few guidelines to relate with the operation of realizing an uncommon and inefficient musical instrument to achieve complex and steerable sound synthesis.

The practical section involves the realization by each participant of a basic “circuit bending” project: modifying the circuit of a cheap pocket radio to make it a portable and amplified electronic musical instrument.

The fundamental goal of the class is showing the possibility of making electronic instruments for sound synthesis with little money and no technical knowledge.

THE WORKSHOP IS FOR amateurs of electronic music, noise, pedals, musicians and non-musicians, engineers or electronic music geeks. So, no previous skill is required, everyone is welcome.
