What is a Noise Machine?

Noise Machines are electronic musical instruments based on analogue synthesizer circuitry that respond to changes in light via a light sensor interface. Our DIY Kits are simple oscillator circuits with a light sensor that will introduce you to electronics and circuit building and the principle of working with light to create sound.

Build a Noise Machine: 10:30 - 12:30

Using our new 'DIY Noise Machine Kits', build your own mini synthesizer with light sensor. Learn about electronic components, and how to make a fully working circuit. The kits respond to changes in light, once the circuits are built, you can play your new instruments.

Break for lunch 12:30 - 13:30

Graphical Sound and Performance: 13:30 - 15:30

Explore the principles of graphical sound, creating paper scores inspired by drawings thinking about pattern, visual rhythms and the sonic output of visual shapes. Using turntables and light Theremin circuits play, collaborate and listen to your paper scores in a live demo.

This workshop is open to everyone and is suitable for children aged 12+
