Eastern Bloc in collaboration with AKOUSMA present a hands on workshop with the modular synth designers Befaco

In this DIY workshop taught in english, all the necessary components will be provided (in kit format) to build a device from scratch. Each participant builds her/his own machine during the workshop.

Registration: for more information and to reserve your seat at the workshop please visit: https://shop.befaco.org/inicio/927-montreal-workshop.html

The workshop is meant more as two working sessions rather than a fixed structured lecture. Like this participants can choose to come only for an afternoon and build a simple module, or a whole day to build a complex module or even come both days full on and build two or three modules!

Like this we will fit for the needs of all kind of users, from beginners that want to learn to solder and get into DIY, to experienced users that want to take the maximum of the weekend and build as much as possible!

For the more experienced and curious on Sunday October 21th there will be a 5-7 Q&A session where you can discover how they go from idea to the rack.

Location: 7240 Clark, 2nd floor I Sat Oct 20th and Sun Oct 21th I 11:00 - 19:00 

Required skills: Interest and patience. No previous experience in electronics is necessary.

Required materials: We can provide some soldering irons and hand tools for participants who don’t have their own. Although it's always advisable to bring your own tools: Fine tip soldering iron less than 25w is recommended as well as cutting pliers and a multimeter.
