DOO-RAG (LCDD) CONSTRUCTION WORKSHOP
Making clever electronic components that produce music
SAT 13 MAR 2010
In this workshop, Olaf will show us how to make small electronic components capable of producing music, called Doo-Rags, from a variety of recycled objects, such as discount-store electronic games, cans, hair dryers, plastic objects, and the like. The result is a series of pop instruments that make unusual cybernetic sounds.
Basically, a Doo-Rag is made by manipulating and transforming the electronic sound circuit in toys. Discarded parts from different artefacts, toys and appliances found in rubbish bins and flea markets – ordinary objects such as telephones, sound keyrings, tins of sardines, galactic guns, cheap toys, etc. – are dismantled, modified, redesigned and reconstructed to give them a new life. The idea is to modify the sound of these simple appliances or provide invented objects with their own music.
Noise recycling at the service of music: “circuitbending”.
Targeted at young people between the ages of 15 and 18
Enrol free up to 5 March
Activity organized in collaboration with Dirección General de Juventud
