Reservations: billetterie {AT} gaite-lyrique.net


HalldÃr and ÃrÃinn (say "Phrainn"), artists and members of Lorna
organization (Reykjavik, Iceland) are musicians who create their own
acoustic instruments with the use of digital crafting tools (laser
cutter, CNC, 3d printers ...). They are also investigating together the
filtering effects of variously shaped cavities on sound, using a modular
acoustic formant system they have developed.

For this workshop, they will test various cavities as to turn them into
sound filter digital effects, with use of the software Vowel (developed
by Paul Falstad to digitally model the human vocal tract as an acoustic
filter). http://www.falstad.com/vowel/

Workshop open to everyone, no pre-requisite.
Participants are invited to bring their laptop and any resonant object
of their choice.

hands-on workshop. Since 2006, Mal au Pixel festival is looking at
connecting technology, urban electronics and social transformation
issues, and to investigate our contemporary beliefs. The  festival
brings together young digital artists and unconventional electronics :
unexpected technologies, open source tools, prototypes and open ended
events. http://www.malaupixel.org
