Build Your Own DIY Synth with Isn’tses

Sat 16 Sep | 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Build your own square wave ring-modulation synth based on the LM567 Tone Decoder chip in this workshop led by Lisa McKendrick and Tim Drage, aka Ins’tses.

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 up-cycled materials.

No previous experience in electronics or music performance is necessary. All materials are provided and participants may keep what they create. Suitable for those with an interest in experimental music and sound arts.
