This workshop is free to attend but due to limited places, advance booking required.
Acoustic musical instruments are mainly variations of strings, skins and tubes with resonating bodies that can quite readily be understood in their functionality. Electronic musical instruments however are often boxes with cables and loudspeakers, with their inner life hidden. I think that musical interplay (and also audience appreciation) can benefit from a basic understanding of the functionality of all types of instruments, that's why I would like to lift the lid on an array of electronic music boxes and expose their workings, freedom and limits. This includes hands-on demonstrations, a short performance and a question and answer session.
Knut Aufermann is a musician and radio artist who has been been playing improvised music with electronic instruments since 1998.
