DIY Elektrosluch Mini Workshop


Dec 01 2015 18:00 - 20:00


Build your own electromagnetic listening device/recording instrument, the “Elektrosluch Mini,” in a special workshop led by Slovak experimental artist and musical instrument creator Jonáš Gruska. Designed specially for the event, the mini edition of the Elektrosluch is an open-source device for recording electromagnetic signals. With it, you can discover the sonic worlds of electromagnetic fields, an invisible but ever-present part of our environment. After the workshop, plug in headphones and explore your surroundings.

Here is how it works and sounds:

Number of participants: max 10

Workshop fee: 60€ (excl. VAT + processing fees)

Workshop includes all tools and supplies you’ll need, a hands-on introduction to building and soldering (no experience required), plus your very own Elektrosluch Mini to take home.

You'll also get free VIP entry to our concert 2 December at Platoon, featuring Jonáš Gruska, Nina Pixel, and Triple Sun.

Registration via Billetto is mandatory. If you own a good soldering iron, bring it along - let us know via email:
