Recycled Percussion and Distortion Systems

21/05/2016 - 27/05/2016 | 11:00 - 18:00 | Coded Cultures Central  | Free
Recycling old radios, light bulbs, VHS players, cassettes or Hi-Fi equipment and this way creating proper audio tools. In this DIY hands-on workshop the Mp19_Øpenlab team is presenting their new set of aberrant analogue distortion and percussion devices, which are both stand-alone and Eurorack.

000 modules collective presents a series of aberrant recycled percussion and distortion devices, starting from electronic junk and finishing with proper audio damage tools, during the duration of Coded Cultures: OPENISM. The open hardware collective has designed a specific new and open platform for recycled audio experimentations, consisting of an electronic framework where to solder electronic components taken from obsolete or broken electronics, which could finish on a standalone guitar effect pedal (fuzz, distortion) or being shaped into a percussion module (bass drum, snare) fitting on a modular system.

Participants will build their own device/s from e-junk and some spare components. An introduction to analogue percussive synthesis, concept and module design of an aberrant modular drum machine and efx station, where the workshop will cover both theory and practice about analogue circuit design, percussion and noise. Each day is independent so participants can choose when to join the workshop.

No previous experience in electronics but some e-junk and interest is necessary!
