Atari Punk Console Workshop
The Atari Punk Console is a simple synthesizer with a wide range of sounds. It is so named because the sounds generated are similar to those of the early Atari consoles. In this workshop you will learn the basics of the timing circuits used to make these crazy sounds. You will also learn how to solder, and how to change the the sounds with your fingers as the contact, or even using light to make a simple light Theremin. All parts and tools included in the costs. You are encouraged to find a fun case for your APC and bring it (cigar box, mint tin, Mr. Potato Head other plastic toy, etc), anything hollow that can hold a deck of cards would do, but some will be available at the workshop. This workshop is great for kids, kids at heart, or anyone who wants to learn about sound generation. There will be soldering and the use of a Dremel.
There is no fee to attend.
There is a $25 materials fee if you wish to build something and take it home.
