This BMA lab will introduce some of the main concepts and basic electronic techniques used in DIY construction of sound electronic instruments. Over a day and a half, each participant will have contact with different types of electronic tools and components through assembly and creative experimentation with electronic circuits, building and customizing their own sound instrument, which they will take away with them at the end.

Inês Castanheira is a transdisciplinary artist and researcher. Her work is a continuous dialogue between art and technology, exploring and combining image, sound, electronics, programming and interactivity.
