Electromagnetic Composition Workshop
By Dan Tapper
Workshop sessions take place February 20 and 27, 2022 at 2 pm (UTC -5) with a shared listening session on March 6, 2022 at 2 pm (UTC -5)
General $30, with Advanced Registration.

Discover and tune into the hidden electromagnetic soundscape around you by building your own DIY wire coil inductors.

This online workshop will take place on the meeting platform Whereby. In it you will learn how to build custom wire induction coils that allow the electromagnetic spectrum to be translated into sound. With these devices you can explore the electromagnetic landscapes around your everyday environment in order to create a short audio composition that we will share on the last workshop meeting.
