Event Microphone Building Workshop

Microphone Building Workshop

With Ross Manning

14 October 2017
2pm–4pm

  • Event Cost:
    Free

Learn how to build experimental microphones with the artist and musician Ross Manning in this hands-on workshop.

Manning will show you how microphones work by exploring the different types of microphones and allowing you to create your own. During the workshop you will create two types of experimental contact microphones by stripping cable wires, playing with guitar jacks, and other electronics.

Manning – aside from his visual art practice – is an instrument builder and musician. He builds a variety of sound-producing objects, drawing upon ideas of rhythm, repetition, oscillation, and coloured light as composition.

After you’ve built your microphones, Manning will take you around the IMA exploring to see what sounds different objects conduct. All materials provided, and no special skills are required.

Tickets for the workshop are $20 for IMA Members & $30 for Non-IMA Members. Secure your spot via Eventbrite.
