With all the music in the world at the end of our streaming fingertips, it’s sometimes hard to think of sound as something which takes up space, something with weight, something that can be built. And yet, affordable electronics, simple software, and CNC machines make it easier than ever before to design and construct a musical artifact.

This one-day workshop covers the basics of software, hardware, parametric fabrication and sound design. Housed in the ZÖNOTÉKA gallery in Neukölln, we will go through all the different steps involved in constructing your own sonic object, including:
—Electronics: the basics of Arduino (a hardware prototyping
platform), plus how to put together a microcontroller, a storage module,
an amplifier and a couple of buttons.
—Software: introduction to the basics of programming the
Arduino in order to program your own playback logic (or, as Brian Eno would put it, “semi-autonomous generative music”).
—Fabrication: how to design parts on vector software such as Illustrator, how to cut the casing of your object with ZÖNOTÉKA’s CNC milling machines, and programming shapes with parameters for a unique
—Sound design: the nitty-gritty of audio file formats, and writing code to arrange music.
