Build your own square wave ring-modulation synth based on the LM567 Tone Decoder chip. The circuit includes light-dependent control over pitch, a built-in piezoelectric contact microphone, and candle-flicker LEDs for additional modulation. Participants will have the opportunity to learn basic principles of electronic circuits and components, gain hands-on experience soldering and assembling a custom circuit, and explore their creative potential by crafting a unique electro-acoustic instrument from a range of different upcycled materials.
All materials are provided and participants may keep what they create.
No previous experience in electronics or music performance is necessary.
Suitable for those with an interest in experimental music and sound arts.
