Create your own instruments and sounds with basic electronics. Then perform live! The ten members of Theremidi Orchestra (TO) will guide and assist participants during a five-day, hands-on and theoretical workshop. Participants will assemble two electronic sound devices and learn how to play them in noisy group improvisations.
The workshop will also provide a framework for aesthetic discussion, from how to improvise and work in a group and understanding the sound ranges of the instruments, to implications of collective feedback loops and concepts of social amplification. Then work collaboratively to develop the live performance. Daniel Neumann, curator of CT-SWaM, will assist in developing ideas for spatialization of the multi-channel performance.
On Monday, June 23 CT-SWaM will be holding the last public event at Eyebeam's Chelsea location. This will be the goodbye to this magnificent space in form of a picnic accompanied by various composed and spontaneous tribute performances. The evening will feature a unique ensemble piece by Andrew Lafkas with Marcia Basset, Barry Weisblat, Leif Sundstrom, Rick Brown, Patrick Holmes, Tucker Dulin, Che Chen, Karen Waltuch, Kenny Wang, Andrew Lafkas, Gill Arno, Wolfgang Gil, Daniel Neumann and Ben Owen.
Other solo performers include: Mario de Vega, Hans Tammen, Dafna Naptali, Carver Audain and many more
Please bring food and blankets if you can. We'll provide some blankets and drinks for sure.

Hans Tammen’s “Dark Circuits” Festival features performers who work in contemporary electronic music practices such as circuit bending, no-input mixers, laptops, turntablism, analogue circuitry, network sniffers, live coding and soldering, plus other instruments we may have never heard of yet.
