Three excellent workshops have been announced for the festival, giving you plenty of opportunity to get involved this year.
GET A GRIP Screenprinting
For anyone interested in screenprinting and DIY production we are bringing you a screenprinting workshop in collaboration with GET A GRIP. You can design and print your very own Supersonic T-shirt to keep, a perfect festival memento. Using elements created by an independent illustrator, the aim of the workshop is to get you printing the multiple coloured images wherever you choose over a T-shirt. Open to weekend ticket holders for £25. To book a place, email [email protected] with the subject SCREENPRINT.
Plymouth DIY Punk Cinema collective Imperfect Cinema will be inviting attendees at Supersonic Festival 2011 to contribute to an alternative documentation of the festival using endangered media technologies! Participants will receive a workshop, both practical and theoretical, introducing them to Super-8 cinema and lo-fi modes of recording. Participants will then obtain their own recordings of the festival, documenting their experience of the event. Recordings will then be processed and edited to form a screening and performance of the work created. Spaces are free to weekend ticket holders. To book a place, email [email protected] with the subject IMPERFECT CINEMA.
Dirty Electronics: Mute Synth
Take part in building the Mute Synth and a large group performance with Dirty Electronics. The Dirty Electronics Mute Synth is a hand-held touch and tilt instrument with copper etched artwork and contoured printed circuit board that was designed in collaboration with Mute and graphic designer Adrian Shaughnessy. The instrument brings together many Dirty Electronics aesthetics and instrument designs into one device in particular creating an instrument of the hand (in terms of both playing and building), a noise-based device that utilises feedback, and exploring the relationship between artwork and circuit board. Open to weekend ticket holders for £15. To book a place, email [email protected] with the subject MUTE SYNTH.
