Audience members are invited to build a three-dimensional sound-object. The sound object will feature printed circuit board artwork and a DIY piezo flared horn that omits bursts of noise and generative electronic bell-like sounds. It also comes with a rustic stick beater. Dirty Electronics have become synonymous with DIY electronic sound and a music that is born out of hand-made machines. In Dirty Electronics, process and performance are inseparably bound. The ‘performance’ begins on the workbench devising instruments and is extended onto the stage through playing and exploring these instruments.
Dirty Electronics have collaborated with many artists including Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle) Merzbow, Pauline Oliveros, Nicholas Bullen (Napalm Death and Scorn) and Rolf Gehlhaar (original Stockhausen group), and have released a series of sold out hand-held synths on Mute Records.
Please note that this workshop will be require sign up and places are limited to just 15 – there is also an additional charge to cover the cost of the materials (£34)
