why in the Box Floor:
Curetronic Theremin DIY workshop
Beside good music the why features a "do-it-yourself" workshop, done by Curetronic and sidsonic. People can build their own little Theremin, knowledge of technical terms and soldering are not required.
A Theremin is an electronic instrument, which can be played without touching it. Triggering and volume control are done by an antenna, that you just need to come close to with your hand. Thanks to the seamless playability the Theremin is a very good source for outer space sounds and effects, which most people know from sci-fi movies and series. Of course the instrument is used in music, too. Bands like Beach Boys or Led Zeppelin, Portishead and Welle: Erdball are contained in the list of users. Will you be the latest addition?
Curetronic is a small synthesizer manufacturer located in Dresden. Their specialty are modular synths and kits. Especially for the why event CEO Matthias Schmidt thought of the Theremin kit. He'll also be there in person to answer any questions and help you built the electronic fellows, backed up by sidsonics pink bunny. Alternatively to the Theremin you can also built a little minisynth called Bing-Bong. You can find more infos in this LoFi machine here:
Soldering irons e.g. are available in a rather big number, however, if you don't want but need to solder something it's best to register up front.
The price for one Theremin kit is 25 Euro, the entrance fee for the why will be settled with 5 Euro. This means you can build your own musical instrument and reward yourself with some music.
We'll build our Theremins on Saturday from 2pm to 8pm. You can come whenever you want, of course.
