CoLab will be holding 'The Cardboard Synthesizer Workshop’ on Thursday 30 May with Niklas Roy & Kati Hyyppä.
As the name of the workshop suggests, the day-long session is all about building synthesizers out of cardboard!
We will provide the simple electronic components, which produce different tones, and the challenge for participants - you - is to create with an intriguing interface for making an instrument. In the workshop, we will do a lot of soldering, and cutting and gluing of cardboard. And of course, in the end, we’ll play the synthesizers!
Niklas is a Berlin-based artist, designer and engineer who is in Auckland to speak at the Semi-Permanent conference. Check out Niklas' work.
No previous experience with cardboard or synthesizers is required.
Back in Auckland for its 9th year, Semi-Permanent will once again be bringing a large dose of ideas and inspiration to the big smoke. We'll be flying over and sourcing locally some of the worlds most talented creatives, from a range of different industries, to present their work, their lives and their progressive ideas with you.
In mid-February 2013 thousands of film lovers and journalists descended upon Berlin for the one of the most important dates on the international film calendar: the Berlinale. Each year, the unusual, the unseen, the moving and the unconventional can be discovered at the Berlinale (or Berlin International Film Festival).
This is particularly apparent in the “Berlinale Shorts” category. Since starting work for the festival in 2007, short film curator Maike Mia Höhne has grown the “Berlinale Shorts” into one of the most esteemed showcases for short films in the world.
