We are excited to announce that Goldsmiths will be hosting a free workshop and performance on 19 June at the nearby Out of the Brew café, in which participants will learn to build their own electronic instrument in an all-day workshop with synth-builder and performer extraordinaire Ewa Justka: this will include making your own Voice Odder Synth for live voice processing, which you can take home. All participants will also be given the opportunity to perform with their new synths at a cocktails and electronics concert immediately following the workshop, which will also feature performances for contrabass clarinet and electronics by Heather Roche and Patricia Alessandrini.
Please see below for timings and details. Sign-ups for the workshop are open now and will close at midnight on 10 June, at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org (please indicate 'voice odder workshop sign-up' in the subject of your email, and confirm that you are available all day on 19 June).

During this whole day DIY synth workshop you will playfully and creatively build and redesign simple electronic circuits and then perform with them!
The first part of the workshop will be focused on building simple yet fun square wave oscillators on breadboards: you will be introduced to following topics:
-> reading schematics
-> using tools like multimeters
-> replacing potentiometers with other resistive materials like human bodies and fruit
-> simple introduction to audio synthesis
The second part of the workshop will be focused on building The Voice Odder Synth, which then you can take with you home.
all of the info including audio recordings can be found here: (you can just copy and past the text) :

To encourage participation by female, non-binary, femme, or girl-identifying participants, these participants will receive a free speaker component to use for future projects. If you wish to be considered for this give-away, please indicate this in your registration email.
