Noise Meetup Workshops

Noise Meetup is an initiative to learn, perform and share about experimental sound.

This year, Anna Sophie Adelt and Mascha Illich did it together:
curating and organizing workshops and performance events.
They hope to make your ears buzz and tickle!!!

Live events and Workshops -
the Workshops are held in STWST.

These are the Noise Meetup events this year:

23rd of March, 22:30: Girls Jam, STWST
The Girls Jam will take place after the FLINTA*DJ workshop as part of Night Creature's Deamons.

1st of April, 14:00 - 18:00
Sebastian Six
Circuit Bending Workshop

Dear participants.

I am glad that you are interested in the Circuit Bending Workshop.

Circuit bending is an experimental art form in which electronic devices are modified to create new and unexpected sounds. In the workshop, you will learn how to alter circuits and add new connections to turn electronic devices such as keyboards, toy instruments, and other sound generators into wild and untamable sound machines.

To participate in the workshop, it is best for each*person to bring a toy keyboard or other sound generator that you would like to modify.
!! Please note that not all devices are suitable for circuit bending!
It is best to bring a battery-powered device that still works and is allowed to break.

At the end of the workshop you should have built at least one simple modification or hack, and thus tickled the spirit out of your instruments.

The workshop is suitable for all participants, regardless of their experience with electronics and music production.

I am looking forward to soldering, hacking and creating sounds together.

Sebastian Six is a multidisciplinary Artist. Acoustic experiments, sculptural assemblages, procedural interventions and the physical component of sound are the central elements of his musical and visual compositions. In his artistic works, small interventions often trigger processes whose outcome cannot always be certain. In addition, he focuses his acoustic and artistic performances on the different ways of creating sounds. This ranges from everyday objects to self-made instruments. In this way he creates filigree improvised music that oscillates between experiment, session and concept.

07th of April, 18:30: ADELITA ESCAPES & SPACE GEAR (VIE), Sound Performance, Raumschiff

26th of of May, 18:30: GRAUER HACKBRATEN AUS DER MENSA (VIE), Sound Performance, Raumschiff

27. Mai, 14:00 - 18:00
Andreea Vladut & Florine Mougel

Let’s tickle the electronics!
During the 4 hours workshop, we will engage in building a video synthesizer on a yellow PCB.

The Synchopath will deflect your vision from reality to Composite Video Synchadelics!
The video synthesizer gathers both capabilities of the Videffektor (designed by James Schidlowsky) and the Schele Mixer (designed by Gieskes) with some audio mods for live A/V performance.

How it works:
You give it a 9V power supply, 1 or 2 Composite video signals, possibly 1 audio too, to get more crazy, turn the pots and push the switches to get 1 distorted Composite Video out.

Tickle the electronics: Building a video synthesizer
No. of participants: 10
Price : 20 EUR

Basic skills in soldering are welcome (beginner).
Please bring with you the patience for soldering. 
Let’s hack some images together!

Presentation RGBastler
Introduction: Synchopath - presentation on the means of electronics
Building the video-synth 
Hacking the image - tryouts
To end up, we´ll plug a video signal through all the Synchopaths in a chain and see what crazy output we get on the screen!

RGBastler is an artist collective formed by media artists Florine Mougel (FR) and Andreea Vladut (RO). Both of the artists followed the master’s degree program of Time-Based Media, Kunstuniversität Linz. With a focus on sound art, they engage with matters where technology, materiality, and performativity become critical. Influenced as much by electroacoustic music as video art, their works rethink the potential of signals as an aesthetic material, composing poetic sound atmospheres from which emerges an implicit narration.
