Build an experimental instrument with UK guest maker Tim Crombie (Only Rays) using upcycled materials.
If you have any old instruments or materials that you would like to incorporate into a new sound-making device please bring them along.
Nomad Sounds will be experimenting with recording sounds in different outdoor/indoor temporary spaces throughout the day.
Tim is an artist, musician, designer and maker who lives in London. He loves making things, making sounds and making things that make sounds. He's worked with choirs, sound installations, and lots and lots of instruments. He makes music as Only Rays. And he's lovely.
"As a maker I'm specifically interested in playing with materials in order to gain a tacit knowledge of the world around us. Being a designer or an engineer means that you can understand products and the built environment on a more intimate level. You can see though the veneer of a design and understand the components at work within it.
In this workshop we'll play around with strings, tines and percussion made from found materials and use objects to resonate and amplify the sounds. These are the two fundamentals of musical instrument design and by playing around with them in a very DIY manner we can start to gain a new knowledge of instruments in general and open up our heads to the potentials of everyday objects for sound making."
The Workshop is free and open to everyone but please take a second to register below as we have a limited number of places (10-15):
