Contact Mics hanging up to dry following workshop 1

Contact Mics hanging up to dry following workshop 1

Yesterday was the 2nd of what will now be three workshops I’m giving at MakeHaven hacker space in New Haven, CT. The first two focused on creating contact mics and designing and building acoustic instruments. The third workshop, TBA sometime in October, will center on basics of electronics and circuits, bending/hacking instruments, toys, household objects, etc, and then interfacing the analog with the digital via Arduino. If you are interested in coming to the third workshop, please leave a comment below, or go to http://www.makehaven.org to check out the event. (You do not need to have attended parts 1 and 2 to attend part 3.)

You can see some pictures and videos from the workshops at the following link:

INI Workshop Prototype Instruments pt. 2

INI Prototype Instruments Pt. 2

INI Prototype Instruments Pt. 2

These are the last of the prototype instruments I designed for the INI instrument workshop which took place last Thursday at Artspace New Haven.  If you go to ininewhaven.com you can see some pictures and video from the event.  Turnout was great and everyone had a swell time making things to make noise.  We plan to give a series of instrument making workshops at MakeHaven (makehaven.org) in the new year so stay tuned.  We envision a 2-part workshop where we would make contact mics in part 1 and then make instruments in part 2.
