Starting October 18th, we will offer monthly workshops at Salvage Vanguard Theatre where you can learn how to solder, build a synth kit, show off your own musical DIY project of any type, and jam with the new Andromeda Space Rocker synthesizer kits.
Free beginner classes!
This free class is for anyone, even if they’ve never picked up a soldering iron or know the difference between a capacitor and a resistor. We’ll show how to solder, discuss the basics of electronics and build an analog drum. Soldering equipment will be provided but if you have your own tools, bring them along.
Andromeda Space Rockers are here.
In the upper division class, we’ll walk you through one of our new modular, networkable synthesizer kits and discuss synth design. Each event will feature a different kit, starting with one of Eric’s drum machines. Classes are $45 and include a kit and all necessary materials.
Each device can communicate with each other via an ir network. This means that when you place them next to each other they automatically sync and play at the same tempo.
There will be 100% analog drum machines from Eric, a digital bassline generator with analog filters from Dann of 4ms, and an Arduino based synth with an analog VCO from Dr. Bleep. These kits will be available online after the first event.
A jam at every event
There will be a jam / performance once the instruments are built. We encourage you to bring some pedals and a small amp to plug in your new synth, or even your own DIY instrument, and participate in an exciting musical experiment.
