Louisville Soundbuilders will be hosting a circuitbending workshop Monday 11/15 8pm at LVL1. It is FREE, but please bring something to circuit bend.
Circuitbending is the art of short-circuiting electronic devices to unleash their hidden potential as new instruments.
This is a hands-on circuitbending workshop hosted by Louisville Soundbuilders. Bring in a cheap audio toy and we will guide you through the art and practice of circuitbending. It is highly recommended that you bring something to circuitbend, as there is no substitute for actually doing it! But all are welcome regardless.
Video of the Teletron Demonstration. This was performed at the 1st meeting of Louisville Soundbuilders at LVL1.
Score by Robert Schneider (The Apples in stereo). Performed by Robert Beatty (Hair Police) and Robert Schneider, September 20, 2010, at LVL1 Hackerspace (Louisville, Kentucky), using two Moog MG-1 synthesizers with two Teletron mind-control interfaces. Conducted by LVL1 president Chris Cprek (Pax Titania, Nzambi).
This Monday Sept 20th we're starting a Louisville Soundbuilder's group that will be meeting every other Monday. We meet to talk shop about analog and digital synthesizers, circuit-bending, electronic noisemakers, computer music, etc. You are encouraged to bring equipment and show off some sounds. The focus is DIY and is a great resource for people that want to learn how to get started.
This first meeting will feature demonstrations from Robert Schneider of Apples in Stereo, Elephant 6, et al. He will be demonstrating his Teletron, a hacked Mindflex device for completely mind controlled synthesis experimentation. Some video here:
I will be demonstrating my homebuilt analog synthesizers, including exotic interfaces like the Klee sequencer (a bit shifted analog sequencer) and some experimentations in isomorphic keyboard design.
The meeting is at 8pm sharp, free to anyone who wants to attend, learn and contribute.
