CPO (Code Practice Oscillator) has long been used to learn Morse code.

The electronic workshop Lost poetics of the CPO consists in making a portable electronic instrument inspired by these tools to practice this endangered language, thus re-actualizing a past mode of communication and revealing its potential for electronic and artistic creation. Ideas to be discussed include the notions of becoming transmitter and receiver, the poetic aspect of lost or untranslatable messages, and long-distance communication as a limit to sound improvisation.
