| Workshop examples
I regularly conduct hands-on workshops on various aspects of sound hacking, synth DIY and music electronics. Having conducted around 100
workshops on music electronics, synthesizers and circuit bending I have a lot of experience in conducting workshops ranging from a single hour to courses
spanning several weeks.
Look further down for specific workshop examples.

(above) Sound hacking workshop at Container By Detours, Nørrebro, 29th of April, 2017 . We had a great day with DIY synth building (mostly CMOS photo
theremins) and later DIY pizzas too!
Examples of workshops:
Photo theremin1-hour synth workshop. Build a simple light controlled synthesizer (photo-theremin) with basic analog
electronic components on a breadboard. 10 - 15 participants.
Oscillator1 to 3 hour synth workshop. Build a simple oscillator (tone generator) on a printed circuit board. 15 - 20
The Oscitrode2 to 4-hour synth workshop. Build the Oscitrode, a Hexaphonic, electrode controlled synthesizer and learn how to
solder. 15 - 20 participants. See the Oscitrode page for more info on the synth and how it works.
Hands-on modular4-hour workshop. As the above workshops but including an hands-on intro to modular synthesizers - I'll bring
my self built modular synth which will be the basis of the workshop. Depending on the skill level of the participants there might be time to solder the
synth as well.
Distortion4-hour workshop. Build your own distortion effects pedal. This one is the guitarists favourite; build a classic
fuzz, overdrive or distortion circuit. Sounds good with synths too!
CoursesI've been doing several courses in which the students work on larger projects. Each workshop might have a specific
theme e.g. a function/ module of the synthesizer (VCF, VCO etc.).
Live setsMost of the workshops are easily combined with a small live set to give an impression of the possibilities of (DIY)
Tailored workshopsThe workshop examples on this page are mostly examples of workshops - I'm happy to talor a workshop that
suits your needs. Get in touch with me and we'll figure out
