Show/Hide Details
Mar 21,2016 -     Time: 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Build a “Whiskerphone”

Instrument inventor Bryan Day provides a hands-on workshop on making and performing using the Whiskerphone, an amplified carbon fiber filament-based instrument. Build an instrument and participate in the Whiskerphone Ensemble. Detect minute sounds in everyday objects and discover a hidden world of sound.

The workshop include  a whiskerphone kit and an audio CD recording of an improvised performance recorded at the workshop.

Participants will get practice soldering and assembling their instrument from the supplied kit and then work on a collaborative recording which they can bring home with them.

Bryan Day is a sound artist, musical instrument  designer and conceptual artist. His sound work focuses on the subtle  textural interplay of natural recordings and amplified electronic sounds  generated by his invented instrumentation. Using scavenged electronics, repurposed mechanical components, and amplified materials that you might find in your garage or your great uncle’s office, he re-imagines them into constructivist sound sculptures.

Space is limited, please register online. $5 registration fee per participant VIP Pass Holders, no additional fee necessary. (Registration still required)
