Build a synthesizer in a new way using needle and thread instead of soldering iron and fabric instead of circuit boards. Syntjuntan is an ensemble of female composers, musicians and instrument builders and they will give a workshop where you literally stitch together a synth using needle and thread!
You don’t need to have a PhD in electronics to enjoy this workshop, anyone with or without phobia for soldering irons can participate!. With just a few simple components, needle and conductive thread you will stitch together your own synth and learn the basics of DIY synth building. A kit with all the necessary stuff that you need to participate will be sold at the workshop. Amplifiers and speakers to play with and listen to your creations will be provided.
A Syntjunta is a combination of a concert and a workshop. When your handstitched synthesizer is ready you will learn how to control and play it, and even make a short composition. If you want to attach your synth to a garment or some fabric of your own choice, feel free to bring it with you to the workshop.
The workshop will be taught in English. Participation is limited to 20 participants.
