The first workshop in Milieux’s Soft SLow Tech series is just around the corner! October 26th at 1pm at MilieuxMake we will be exploring ‘soft sound’!
Join co-facilitators, artist and cyborg lee wilkins and multi-disciplinary artist RythÂ Kesselring, in investigating how can we reimagine the experience of sound via textiles and other material substrates, by hand-building soft speakers and testing them out with specialized electronic modules. We will look at different textile speaker coil and magnet configurations to interact with sound, both as audible and tactile events.
Soft SLow tech is a series about creating electronics that are made out of soft, squishy, pliable, bendable, or otherwise unconventional materials. With bi-weekly meet-ups, alternating between workshops and group work sessions, we will explore soft circuits, e-textiles, soft robots and slow / low tech solutions. For those interested in getting more deeply involved, the ultimate goal will be to collaborate on a project, to be determined by the group! All participants are invited to take part in both learning through an ongoing workshop series, and working together on a larger project in bi-weekly sessions, or exploring individual projects as well!
* We ask that you register by emailing lee at email@example.com with ‘soft sound’ included in the subject line.
** This workshop is open to members of all Milieux research groups and requires no pre-requisites.
As this is an ongoing series, even if you cannot make this workshop, feel free to contact us to register your interest for future events in the Soft SLow Tech series, so that we can schedule and plan accordingly!
