Experimental Sound and Music JAM

Two experimental sessions to make love with sounds and our imagination. Bring the instrument with which you most vibrate or the junky stuff that inspire you the most: we are going to create a playful space to get closer to the simplicity of the most basic electronic music.

We will pick up samples of rebellious sounds, indolent noises, unexpected variations of the ether. We will explore improbable connections, altered perceptions, ephemeral scores. The collective music creativity belongs to us and we will enjoy it!

The second session will be dedicated especially to explore simple analog synthesizers!
In particular we are going to make circuits based on the famous integrated chip 555.

What sounds will they produce?
Come and find out!

9 and 22 June 2016  from 19H to 21H.

Participation is free! The activity will be realized at Baumannlab within the support of the Hack Club program.

act erasmus

About the overall project:

Accessible Culture & Training is a project funded by the ERASMUS + Programme of the EU.

The project ACT proposes the definition of a new professional profile, that of the “Media Accessibility Expert/Manager for the Scenic Arts”, and also the various types of training activities associated to this professional.

The project focuses on promoting equal opportunities and accessibility to cultural events (scenic arts) across countries and languages searching to establish and qualify the profile of accessibility expert to empower all citizens and especially people with disabilities.

About the collaboration:

One of the activities in ACT is to organize a hackathon. Some meetings will take place in advance to prepare participants for the final day. M:A:D Interaction will collaborate as consultant and workshop facilitator with the aims to design new prototypes.
These activities will take place at ESTRUCH Sabadell, Barcelona
