Design new instruments in this hands-on workshop dedicated to the piezoelectric effect, a phenomena first observed in 1880 in which mechanical stress generates an electrical charge in crystals and ceramics allowing one to transform everyday found objects into unique sound generators! Join composer, sound artist, and educator Casey Anderson to learn about and experiment with the technological and artistic concepts that form the basis for this amplification-oriented approach to instrument design.
