Workshop: Build an electro-acoustic, musical instrument

Sundays December 2 and 9, 1-5pm, $50 registration and materials fee

A 2-part workshop with Jason Sanford and Zachary Katz

Learn to build your own electronic musical instrument! No previous experience necessary.

In the first session, we will learn essential techniques including how to read a circuit diagram, breadboarding, soldering, and troubleshooting.

In the second session, we will consider interface design and fabrication techniques. How will your instrument be played? Keyboard? Dials? Foot stomping? Consideration will be given to playability and durability. Put your device in a box and get ready to make music!

Teaching and materials fee: $50.
Minimum number of students 6, maximum 12.

Jason makes and plays one-of-a-kind musical instruments with Boston avant-noise-rock band Neptune. Both Zach and Jason teach at the ongoing salon-style event “Electronic Projects Night.” They also co-teach at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. Jason has taught electronics and sound at the Mass. College of Art and the Rhode Island School of Design.
