ROBOT HOUSE MUSIC ORCHESTRA workshop at I'MM_ on 18th, and 19th May
THE OPEN MUSIC CRAFTING TINKER GROUP CREATES THE ROBOT HOUSE MUSIC ORCHESTRA
Robots work in the industry, help in households, play football – or make music as an orchestra!
In this workshop, participants build and play with a simple, modular and fully analog sounding robot. The basic circuit generates interlinked sound output and has a completely modular, voltage-controlled architecture. This means that it can produce single-voiced drone or can be combined with other units to make complex swarms of drone and signal feedback interaction. Participants in the workshop build their own circuits to take home. Through this process participants discuss some of the fun highlights of how and why the whole thing works.
The goal of the workshop is an audio performance with all the created robots
The workshop is about the creation of a robot orchestra, where sound synthesis and composition are set by light, graphics or pictographs.
The project was inspired by Daphne Oram, whose pioneering achievement, a synthesizer she built in the late 50s, is almost forgotten.
No previous skills are needed.
Newbies are welcome.

BC337, the BC875 should be replaced with the BD697 (same layout), 330 Ohm, 5,6K
Control, actually a Flip Flop circuit. To connect external circuits (e.g oscillators) you only have to attach their minus pole to the unconnected pin of T2.
T1,T2 BC546, C1 470uF, C2 2200uF, R1 220Ohm, R2 10k, R3 1k, P1 10k, D1 Standard LED, D2 1N4001
2N3904, 2N3906, 0,1uF, LDR, 330 Ohm
The minus pole goes to the Flip Flop (remember between T1 and R1 or T2 and R2)
