SOUDNS QUEER? Music Interfaces with Touch Board

w/ Violeta Gill

In this workshop we will design and build a musical interface thanks to the Touch Board by Bare Conductive. We will learn the technology behind this board (capacitive sensors!) and take a look to the code. Be ready to imagine, think, work in a team, practice your art&crafts skills, cut, glue, play and make music with all kind of conductive materials and with the sounds you choose! No previous knowledge is needed.
Workshop will be guided in English.

The workshop is a part of Sounds Queer? the project, aiming at creating a queer synthesizer laboratory and a queer safer space through electronic and computer music. SQ? is happy to visit Brno! 

—>Workshop is for women, femme, non binary and gender nonconforming people only. Let’s think and reflect how easy it is for them to gain this kind of knowledge, how often do they speak/ reach out to teach the gear first.<—
