About the workshop

Perma-patch is a series of inspirational hardware hacks or as Gieskes states on his webpage - hardware songs. In this workshop we will use our random inspiration and build DIY sound devices from different hardware, like computer parts or old cassette players. The results of this 2-day workshop will be unique electronical instruments, which use mechanical extensions as objects to produce sound.

This workshop requires some soldering skills and some basic understanding of electronics. You can also bring your own hardware for hacking.
