I was honoured and delighted to be asked my Music Tech Fest to lead their most recent #MTFSparks workshop as part of the Wallifornia Music Tech festival.
Every MTF event is incredible and I always come away from them with new ideas, new friends and a replenished sense of enthusiasm and motivation.
For this workshop, we had a group of 14 local Belgian kids, from Age 11 up to 16. Each built their own 2-stringed guitar using piezo mics as pickups, followed by introductions to capacitive touch via Bare Conductive, Breadboard Synth building with Helen from Do-It-Kits, Raspberry Pi based step-sequencers with Stefano Piermatteo, DADA MAchines and Puredata and a fantastic narrative addition of tying everything together as a storytelling of a sci-fi band for a performance from Alexandra Antonopoulou. It was a lot to squeeze in for an afternoon workshop but we had a fantastic team of people!
