Handmade Music 4 was a success about 30 0r so people made their way to the event, that was pretty neat and a good time. Some new faces and some old. We had a Ustream going for a bit as it was announced on Tcmaker’s twitter feed.
A short review:
Emily gave her contact mics talk and got a lot of awesome feedback from the audience. There was some confusion as to the meaning of Piezo Wikipedia says “Piezo”, derived from the Greek piezein, which means to squeeze or press.
Andres brought his hand made recording/pitch shifting/ribbon controller/vactrol/baby head guitar thing and explained how it worked..
Hot Tony exhibited an awesome PD patch that he whipped up that turned a pendulum into a drum machine. He also went over the basics of his setup and how he put some of his synths together.
Ogre Smash Death Boom played a few songs and used the mop plus duct tape for a mic stand.
It was a great night, thanks to everybody who came out and perforated.
Handmade Music: Minneapolis is scheduled for some time in February, watch this space and or the Tcmaker blog for dates.
Below are a few pictures I took at the event.
