Wearable synthesizers, NK projekt, Berlin

May 3rd & 4th 14:00-18:00 May 5th 18:00-22:00

Wearable synthesizers with Constanza Piña

Wearable synthesizers is a practical workshop focused on electronics manufacturing for textile projects. During the workshop we will learn to develop soft and flexible circuits, exercising sewing conductive materials and combining elements of textile world with electronics.

The idea is to develop an analog synthesizer circuit that we can attach to our body in a soft, supple and smooth way to interact, and that allow us a greater performance, between the device and the body of the performer.

No previous experience or knowledge necessary!
