[Nettime-nl] [ STEIM ] Announcement Hardware Hacking Workshop (May 24th-28th)

"If it sounds good and doesn't smoke, don't worry if you don't 
understand it."

Join us for a week of HARDWARE HACKING...


Nicolas Collins

musician, composer, sound artist wizard and former artistic director of 

Hardware hacking is an antidote to the use of computers... So take a 
break from the screen and join us for a week of bending and bashing 
hardware for musical purposes and whilst looking for ways to mangle 
their sounds.

Nic will introduce you step-by-step to the low-level secrets of 
hacking, soldering and assemblage of electronic 'chipetry' and how you 
transform these into highly individual expressive sound objects.

The workshop runs for 5 days starting from Monday 24 May to Friday 28 
May 10-17h.

No previous electronic experience is assumed.

Please bring a portable radio and some electronic toys to hack, as well 
as your favourite personal hand tools. All other necessary electronic 
components and soldering tools will be provided for you by STEIM.

There will be an opportunity for an informal group concert by the new 
hackers at the end of the week.
