Workshop Modular Sound Synthesis for Beginners

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

The modular synthesizer, with its jumble of knobs and cables, reminds some people of a telephone exchange or a nuclear experiment. But what is it really? How is an instrument like this constructed, what are its components, and how do all these components function as a whole?

During the Modulation for Beginners Workshop, Allert Aalders, a self-confessed modular nerd, will explain it all from start to finish. Come and dive with others into a world full of clicks and clocks, voltages, gates and triggers. Never fear, the beginners’ workshop is suitable for everyone!

Later that day participants are entitled to free admission to the concert Modulation meets Gaudeamus at 20:15 in Kytopia.
