Oldham BIG: Noise Orchestra – Machine Workshop – Oldham Library – Music, Tech & Making

Build a Noise Machine workshop, Oldham Library: 10:30am – 3:30pm

Come and join in the fun with Noise Orchestra and make some noise!

What is a Noise Machine?

Our Noise Machines are electronic musical instruments based on analogue synthesizer circuitry that respond to changes in light via a light sensor interface. Our DIY Kits are simple oscillator circuits with a light sensor that will introduce you to electronics and circuit building and the principle of working with light to create sound.

Morning session: BUILD A NOISE MACHINE 10:30 – 12:30

Using our new ‘DIY Noise Machine Kits’, build your own mini synthesizer with light sensor. Learn about electronic components, and how to make a fully working circuit. The kits respond to changes in light, once the circuits are built, you can play your new instruments.

Please note lunch is not provided.

Afternoon session: GRAPHICAL SOUND AND PERFORMANCE 13:30 – 15:30

Explore the principles of graphical sound, creating paper scores inspired by drawings thinking about pattern, visual rhythms and the sonic output of visual shapes. Using turntables and light Theremin circuits play, collaborate and listen to your paper scores in a live demo.

This workshop is open to everyone and is suitable for children aged 12+

This workshop is delivered on behalf of the Big Ideas Generators project by Noise Orchestra
