Sound artist Tasos Stamou presents a circuit bent/hacked toys workshop introducing some of the most convenient techniques for turn throw-away junk into killing-sound electronic instruments and sound sculptures!
Day one is dedicated to presenting some of the easiest and most effective tricks in how to turn simple objects into useful sound devices. The second day will be a chance for participants to try out hacking and testing new projects as well as practicing their own creations real-time in a collective jamming session. Participants are welcome to bring their own devices for bending, otherwise some hackable toys will be available for hacking. (Ticket price is cheaper).
If you would like to bring along your own toys, please let us know what items you will bring so we can let you know if they are suitable. Email us at: listening[at]sound-space-store.co.uk
Workshop Leader Biography: Tasos Stamou is - among other activities concerning sound art - a dedicated circuit bender and an instrument modifier. He has been utilising his hacked creations within various performances (such as at the BENT festival at NYC) and recordings (labels: Absurd, Triple Bath, Errorcode and more). He is also involved in electroacoustic composition (analogue synthesizer, DIY electronics, laptop music), vivid sonic performances and sound installations. He is currently sound-designing and performing works for film, video-art and experimental theatre incorporating with fellow artists of moving image and kinetic arts (performance, physical theatre). He set up kukuruku recordings in 2008, an independent label for innovative electroacoustic ephemeral sound works. Here he curates, produces and illustrates releases in collaboration with the artists involved.
