KIIRTOIT KÕRVADELE - heliworkshop 19. juunil algusega kell 15:00 ja kontsert algusega kell 19:00
Finnpore Tour 2011
Jukka Hautamäki (FIN) and Dennis Tan (SNG/GER) are making noise and experimental music tour in Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland during 2 weeks (9. – 23.6) in June 2011.
The artists are also interested in giving presentations of their works and offering short workshops about sound art and experimental electronics e.g simple CMOS sound circuits and hacks.
Dennis Tan is a singaporean sound artist living and working in Bremen, Germany. As a sound artist, he makes sound installation which are both sculptural and compositional. He has also written graphical notations for musicians or none musicians alike.
He founded the group Sonic Kitchen in 2003 and they have releases on Kitchenworks (GER) and naivsuper (GER). Since 2006 Tan has gone solo and has participated in a compilation on [TN012] Tecnonucleo (netlabel)
Tan works under various moniker but this year, he works under a new project name, Squarewhite. Squarewhite address first the question, what is the difference between noise and silence, since our perception changes all the time? He will explore and research on this question with both analog (diy electronics) and digital tools (synths, samples, maxmsp).
Currently he is getting his hands dirty with Arduino and DIY electronics.
Jukka Hautamäki is media artist living and working in Helsinki, Finland. He works with video, digital photography, experimental soundscapes and electronics. His primary form of expression is media installation.
With Ihokas moniker Hautamäki has always tried to maintain unique kind of style while avoiding most common mainstream solutions. Music style is abstract ambient noise with a twist. The live music is occasionally accompanied by video projection. Ihokas live music is combination of digital sound processing, live sampling, diy synths and electro-acoustic sound improvisation.
Hautamäki is also working with diy electronics, Arduino and MaxMSP. He is founding member of Turku based experimental electronics association Kokomys (kokomys.org). Hautamäki has kept sound art and electronics workshops in Finland and Germany. Hautamäkis music has been released on albums and V/A compilations by Turbo Records (CAN), Lumi Records (FIN),
[aanite] (FIN), Luumu Recordings (FIN), Acidsoxx Musicks (USA).
Fast food for ears - DIY electronics workshop
The workshop is an introduction into the world of building your own diy synths, making contact microphones and having fun with CMOS chips. The workshop will be conducted in three hours.
During the workshop three different stages of a circuit will be presented:
1. Prototype on breadboard
2. Soldering on copper stripboard
3. Mount electronics in a box for ready-to-play version.
Participants will build the circuit first on the breadboard. After that they are encouraged to experiment with the circuits, listening to the differences between components (resistors, capacitors etc.).
Projects include: Preamp, making a contact microphone, nand synth, simple matrix synth.
Workshop is for max. 5 people. Previous knownledge of electronics is not required. Small fee for materials. Synth kit prices starting from 5 euros.
Things to bring:
Soldering iron, if you have one
A box or container for your synth (optional)
Yourself and open attitude for learning new things
