Build Your Own Synth

  • SIGNAL Arts Flinders Lane Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

This month at Sound School at Signal we'll learn how to build an Atari Punk Console from scratch - a single-oscillator synthesizer that requires no soldering.

This session is free for young people 13 to 25, bookings are essential.

Guiding us will be audio-visual artist Laura Davis (InfraGhosts), who will teach us how to fit parts onto a breadboard (no-solder circuit board) to create an Atari Punk Console, a tiny synth that mimics the sound of old Atari games - complete with its own speaker to start playing and annoying your friends or parents straight away. No knowledge of electronics or music required :) All parts are provided free of charge and you can take home your build at the end!
