Workshop: Tactile Noise Machines

Saturday 26th May 2012
WORM
Rotterdam, NL

“This workshop will be dedicated to constructions of touch-reactive noise
machines. Such devices, based on a simple amplifier chip, are able to
produce a variety unexpected tones and textures, depending on the
position, humidity and pressure of the fingers touching its circuits’
contact-points. The body becomes part of the machines’ electrical flux,
and is directly responsible for the generation of sound. Such
characteristics turn them into amusing sonic puzzles open to sensorial
exploration.

By the end of the workshop, apart from taking home an instrument of
their own design, guaranteed to put and end to the neighbours’ peace,
participants will become familiar with basic knowledge of electronics
and circuit building.

Participants are asked to bring non-metallic objects, such as boxes,
buckets, tupperwares, etc, to house their tactile noise machines.

All levels of experience welcomed.”
