[safari] [@berlin] AnalGital Synth Workshop “Building an Analog-Digital Synthesizer ”

Final schedule:
On Monday at 4 pm. 10-02-2014
On Tuesday at 3 pm. 11-02-2014
On Wednesday 4 pm. 12-02-2014

 very important send an email to pechblenda@riseup.net to confirm when you are coming.
the place for the workshop is Where is Jesus at Wrangelstrasse 57 Berlin.

Analogic synthesizers are fun. But imagine if you could program each synth and made them sound and act as you feel like!
AnalGital synths have a lot of possibilities, adding filters like envelopes, delays, decays and others.
With Analog-digital synthesizers we can mostly do what we want to. Adding some LDR (so sound is controlled by light), some Pressure Sensors or Ribbon sensors.

We will understand electronic basis and electronic basic components. we will also understand what is arduino, how it works and its community around.
We will learn how to program in arduino. And how to build a nice sound and noise arduino synthesizer.

Using Arduino Pro Mini, we will be able to build a Arduino based on granular synthesis.

you can hear here and example about the sounds that this synthesizer can make

Needs for the workshop: if possible bring your electronic hardware tools, your laptop and soldering iron, in case you have an Arduino bring it as well l!
After we will make a jam session together with all the new synthesizers!!

It will be a 6 hours workshop, however we can go further if necessary.
the cost of the workshop is 50€.

Please, send us an email here to confirm if you are coming!!! pechblenda@riseup.net
but if you cannot confirm, and you want to come in the last minute you can come as well!!!!
please send this information to all your friends!!!

thanks to tinkerit for show us how to build one by ourselves.
Pechblenda is a TranshackFeminist Bio-electro-chemical Laboratory <> established in Calafou <>. We work with free hardware and free software and mess around with electronic circuits, circuit bending, repairing devices, noise concerts, experimentation and development, giving workshops and doing tutorials DIY since 2 years ago. We are involved in many different projects and right now we are experimenting with DIY analog-digital synthesizers, between others. http://pechblenda.hotglue.me/?transhackfeminismo. We also work with gender issues, and we understand our bodies as another code to be hacked.
The nucleus of Pechblenda is made of 3 heads, 6 hands, 6 ears and 3 tongues. Pin, Julito & Klau. Each of us have different trajectories but always surrounded by the same ideals.

you can hear some noises from us here:
