“Voltaje control” - Analog Audiovisual Synthesizer   ---  Building Workshop 

Sunday 1st May / Monday 2 May Location PROGRESS BAR - Hacker space Bratislava

 

Attendees will be able to build 2 different  audiovisual analog synthesizers, capable of creating black / 

white video patterns, signals in the audible range, weird 

noises, feedbacks and touch sensitive body reactions in CRT TV´s and audio systems. 

- No electronic knowledge is required for the workshop. 

- Introduction to electronics and basic A/V synthesis. 

- Evolution step by step, personalized support will be provided during the workshop. 

- Kits and main tools for building the device will be provided at the workshop space but soldering irons, 

and some working tools like drill/dremel, pliers, tin, screwdrivers, etc. are welcome. 

-Assistants can bring home everything they build and all the devices will work at the end of the workshop 

-if you have old small CRT TV´s please bring it to the workshop space 

-A public performance in Enter Gallery will be done on the 5th of may at 20h 

-Free assistance, come ask, learn,…
