Dirty Electronics – The Racket!

  • Location:
    Fabra i Coats, Sant Adrià, 20, Barcelona, Barcelona

Take part in a hands-on building session and rehearsal of pieces for the Dirty Electronics Racket! The Racket! is a DIY kit that introduces a number of key building blocks of analogue synthesiser design and Dirty Electronics aesthetics. It features an oscillator, wave shaping, noise generation, filtering, feedback and touch control. It is designed to be made on stripboard using wire connections as well as having a small copper etched artwork printed circuit board as a touch control. The result is a small thrifty synth with a massive sound! Requires a 9 volt battery and external amplification. No prior knowledge of electronics is needed. The activity will conclude with a performance by Dirty Electronics and pieces for the Racket!
