29. May - 28. June 2015
Casperelectronics aka Peter Edwards, is an American artist, musician, and teacher. He has been exploring the field of circuit bending and experimental musical electronics since 2000.
At the residency he combines fields electronics, invention, music and collaboration and engage within local community via lectures, workshops and performance.
The aim of the residency is to actively include the public into the creative process, and equip them with the basic knowledge of electronics and an appropriate as well as instructive tool and tutorials for the further development, experimentation and creation. The end results are published in open-source fashion at the programme’s conclusion in the form of extensive documentation (a manual) about its use and functions.
During his residency Mr. Edwards will be holding free studio sessions (instructional lectures and workshops) every week, where you can learn about electronics and build your own experimental musical instruments.
The workshops will be based on a circuit exploration tool called the OMSynth MiniLab. The MiniLab is a musical electronics invention tool that is part electronics learning lab, part musical instrument and gives you everything you need to build, hack and play with a wide range of experimental sound circuits. The MiniLab is completely portable. Build circuits in the woods, play music in a cave, impress your pets.
June 4th: Oscillators & sensors The core of almost any noise circuit... and everything else.
June 12th: Sequencers, modulators & event generators Making your oscillators sing.
June 18th: Lets build an echo. Why not.
TIME: 6pm – 10pm
MENTOR: Peter Edwards
LOCATION: Ljudmila, Rimska 8, 1000 Ljubljana
Attendance at the lectures and workshops are free of charge. All are welcome, from complete beginners to hardened pros. All materials will be provided but participants are encouraged to bring their own supplies to experiment with.
