anal-gital synthetizers

We are at Pechblenda lab making a lot of prototypes to learn about analogdigital synthetizers, we started with an Auduino with Arduino uno board and we make also a prove with mini arduino pro, both are working perfectly now

Workshop based on analgytal synths.

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!!!
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. 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.

Pechblendian… Logic non logic gender [[off]]noiseX
We seek the reapropiation of technology through performance and electronics workshops.

switching from non logicalgender / to no(i)sex
In this workshop we mix experimental NOISE with gender performativity, whereas both ways of expression should also be considered as open, free and hackeable technologies-
we want to highlight the DIY and DIWO dimension of technological reapropiation, in order
to create in a collective way, objects and home-made devices which produce noise as a tool to re-segnify our relation with technology.
We perceive the matter through the experience of listening of any kind of sounds.
SIlence and its amiguity heard as noise itsel¡f
On the other hand, the use of drag to deconstruct gender dichotomy and understanding the cyborg as a genderless being opposed to the heteronormative and mainstream uses of technology,
The result of this workshop will be the sampling of an audio synthethizer based in the Integrated circuit 4093
Noisy and performative context
Detournement -re-use of materials-descontextualize objects from their uses .
Bending, Gambiarra and Metarecycling
The cyborg -human/machine and transhackfeminism
the expanded body – exo.sculptures
queer noise against capitalism
