[Nettime-nl] [ STEIM ] REMINDER: Soundbikes workshop - BIKE YOUR BEAT

>>>> Still places left <<<<

STEIM presents a workshop by soundbike artist Kaspar KÃnig.

Soundbikes - BIKE YOUR BEAT
by Kaspar KÃnig

A workshop in which do-it-yourself manipulation of ordinairy bicyclesÂleads
to high-end sound-generators and performingÂinstruments.Â
Bring a bike and transform it togetherÂwith the knowledge andÂenthousiasm of
inventor-artist Kaspar KÃnig.Â

Creating acoustic extensions for the bicycle sounds like a
contradiction-in-terms to the design of a bicycle. In this workshop
everybody is invited to discover the many sounds hidden in the bicycle
itself and the bicycling. To make a regular bicycle-sound we can easily
neglect the maintainance of a bicycle. By not only turning the bicycle
upside down but by actively addingÂsound-sensors, we'll discover the
possibilities of soundbiking. Add-ons can be everything from a playing-card
and laundry wedges, to fully powered amplification for strings, microphones
and all other things that fit the conditions of the soundbicycle and its
creative maker.
