workshop Electricity Matters

November 29th, 2017 until December 1st, 2017

ELECTRICITY MATTERS is collective experiment.
It consists of a workshop on custom-made analog synthesizers followed by a group performance.
For three intensive days, participants will acquire new skills in electricity and electronic circuits design, while generating a collective sound performance. With an experimental approach, participants will be guided through the conception/production of small custom-made analog synthesizers. Everyone will have the chance to create and experiment with a series of circuits and electronic elements, while manipulating the incoming electricity and interpreting it as sound harmonies or dissonances. By using electricity as the sole conceptual matter, participants will explore the sound potential of the electric flux, while creating fluid instruments that are in accord with their individual practice and preferences. The workshop will end with a collective sound performance using the newly built instruments.

3 days workshop (15 hours): 29 November, 30 November & 1 December, 2017, anytime from 10 am to 10 pm
Collective sound performance with the newly built instruments: 3 December, 2017, 2 – 5 pm, Muziekgebouw aan ’t Ij
