This workshop is open to children from 6 to 10 years old, and aims to make them discover in a playful way the delights of sonic chaos. This initiation to improvised noisy music will be done in a playful way through synthesizers, hijacked electronic devices and more conventional instruments.
For a day and a half, the participants to the Play/Système/Son workshop are invited to collectively turn public spaces into sound installations, with no required aptitudes but curiosity and imagination. Broadcasting from mini autonomous amplifiers, amplifying the surrounding acoustic or electromagnetic phenomena, experimenting to make the city resonate, each one plays how he or she wants but all together, all together, yeah, yeah.
Polish electronic artist Ewa Justka will guide the workshop participants through the creation of an electronic machine. “Voice Odder” is a simple electronic circuit based on an IC delay. It has a built-in microphone and includes echo and delay effects, resonance sampling and distortion, depending on resistance and voltage. The workshop participants will learn how to build electronic circuits: how to solder, read technical data and diagrams, use a multimeter and discover the functions of basic electronic components. The complete set of parts will be provided and is included in the price. Participants will leave the workshop with their own fully functional Voice Odder. The workshop is for beginners, but experienced participants will also have fun!
Philosophical, poetic and spontaneous radio program, conducted by a dozen individuals of ages ranging from 7 to 31. Together, for three hours of a game somewhere between public and secret, speaking comes more freely at the rhythm of open discussions where one gets to know another by wondering about life, beauty, originality, authority, noise and other existential matters.
