The Sweet, Sweet Sound of Music

Build an EconoMIC Bottle-Cap Contact Mic with CMKT 4

The circuit bending band is coming to the Dallas Makerspace! This Saturday, May 5th, the Dallas Makerspace will be hosting a workshop on circuit bending, run by the musical group known as CMKT. They are currently touring around the states to tons of different Hacker and Maker Spaces, imparting their love for music and making by combining them into a workshop for all ages. The workshop desciption is as follows:

Circuit-bending rock trio CMKT 4 will help students build a sturdy, working piezoelectric pickup using components and recycled materials. The band will help you learn to solder and ensure your success in building the kit. The comic book instructions will help guide you through their special process of soldering, drilling, gluing, zipping, and dipping – Voila! You are the proud owner and maker of your very own EconoMIC Bottle-Cap Contact Microphone (from Creme DeMentia). This simple transducer will create an audio signal from physical vibrations – like an electric stethoscope! Stick around for a performance from the band while the tool-handle dip dries!

This event is open to members and non-members, but space is limited so show up early! Event starts at 2pm at 2995 Ladybird Lane, Dallas TX 75229, Saturday May 5th. There is a fee for the kit: approx 15-20 dollars.
