    Wearable Sound Toy Orchestra

    27+28 November 2010, 14:30-18:00, Mostra Sesc de Artes, Sesc Pompeia, Sao Paulo, Brazil
    max 15 participants

    The Wearable Sound Toy Orchestra is a workshop and a performance. No matter what your previous experience is with textiles and/or electronics, this workshop will teach you how to turn cheap electronic sound toys into wearable instruments. Participants will gut electronic sound toys for their cheap circuitry and components and embed these into their clothing using soft circuit techniques. Each workshop yields a collection of wearable instruments that form a unique orchestra of sounds. The workshop culminates in a collective performance of no particular score.

    We ask that each participant brings with them a cheap battery operated sound toy such as a toy piano or a musical greeting card as well as a piece of clothing with that they are okay to cut and re-purpose.
