Have you wondered how speakers really work? Would you like to modify your old amplifiers to create a unique sound? Are you ready to create a new instrument that's uniquely yours?
Take a look inside, speakers, amplifiers, oscillators, and sequences. Learn how these electronics really work and how to create a sound that's uniquely yours. This two-day workshop provides a foundation in audio electronics and gives sound makers practical tips on creating new instruments. Discussions on sound design and acoustics will be followed by hands-on workshopping. Students will build one or more sound emitting devices depending on skill and interest and will be able to take home whatever they build at no extra cost.
