Hacking utopia

Besides all the obvious drawbacks of having to postpone my research trip to the UK this month, I'm particularly saddened about not getting to visit my friends Katherine and Jonah.

So if you find yourself at transmediale.04 at the end of the month - and really, why wouldn't you want to go? - give their awesome workshop a go and say hello for me!

"MIDI Scrapyard Challenge is an intensive one-day workshop where participants build simple electronic music controllers (both digital and analog inputs) out of found or discarded "junk" (old electronics, furniture, outdated computer equipment, appliances, turntables, monitors, gadgets, etc.). Participants also build simple drawing robots or "DrawBots" with motors, batteries, and drawing markers that can be connected to the MIDI interface. At the end of the day or evening, the workshop participants have a small performance/concert where they play their instruments together as a large ensemble. No electronics skills or any experience with technology is necessary for the workshop."
