Creative Electronics Laboratory with XNAME

Music Hackspace


£60.00




August 31 @ 11:00 - September 1 @ 18:00 at Somerset House Studios

This workshop guides participants in the construction of a small robot animated by sunlight. After a brief introduction to the rudiments of electronics, the focus is on building a small oscillator soldering all components directly on the microchip. When hit by lights, the robots emit sound. When connected to a speaker they turn into a synthesisers that can be modulated with intermittent and coloured lamps. According to the components selected and the creativity of each participant, every bot will be unique in sound and appearance.

All the necessary components will be distributed at the beginning of the workshop, and every participant can keep the synth built. No previous experience in electronics is necessary to take part in this workshop.

XNAME is a musician and instrument designer. You can find out more at her website (contains flashing lights).
