Based on an experimental approach, participants will be guided through the design and production of a voltage-controlled oscillator while manipulating the incoming electricity and interpreting it as sound harmonies or dissonances. Using electricity as the only conceptual material, participants will explore the sound potential of electrical flow, while creating fluid instruments that fit their individual practices and preferences.

During this workshop, participants will be asked to build their own electronic instruments, experiment with analog control interfaces, play together and take their own console home with them at the end. You will familiarize yourself with basic electronic tools, soldering irons and multimeters. No experience is necessary. There is soldering required to build this kit.  If you have soldering experience, great! If not, don’t worry, you can learn in this workshop.
