collins.jpgTHE ART OF HARDWARE HACKING w/ NICHOLAS COLLINS :: Harvestworks :: Date: June 1 – 4, 2007 :: Time: 10 am – 5pm :: Cost: $350 for members, $410 for non-members – plus $50.00 lab fee :: Location: HARVESTWORKS Digital Media Arts Center, 596 Broadway, Suite 602 (at Houston St), New York, NY 10012 (during our New York Electronic Arts Festival in June) :: Performance: June 4th at 4pm :: Contact: Hans Tammen 212-431-1130.

Please note that the 2005 workshop sold out quickly. We are also happy to announce that this workshop will be held in our newly renovated presentation space at the Harvestworks facility, so the class can accomodate 20 students. To sign up, call Hans Tammen at 212-431-1130, or use our webstore.

In our days every little kid knows how to hack the Pentagon, but few of us really understand how to properly hack a simple battery-driven-kiddies-toy! This is a workshop in hardware hacking for audio applications. No previous electronic experience is assumed. Basic soldering skills will be learned through building contact microphones and coils to sniff electromagnetic fields. The students will open up a range of battery-powered “consumer” technology (radios, electronic toys), observe the effect of direct hand contact on the circuit boards, experiment with the substitution of components, and listen to unheard signals running through the circuit. Knowledge acquired through this process will be applied to building circuits from scratch (oscillators, amplifiers, fuzztones, etc.)

The workshop uses as a reference Handmade Electronic Music — The Art Of Hardware Hacking, Collins’ recent book, published by Routledge (reviewed at Furtherfield).

The workshop will end on Monday, June 4th at 4pm with a public performance of student’s work.

About Nicolas Collins: New York born and raised, Nicolas Collins studied composition with Alvin Lucier at Wesleyan University, worked for many years with David Tudor, and has collaborated with numerous soloist and ensembles around the world. He lived most of the 1990s in Europe, where he was Visiting Artistic Director of Stichting STEIM (Amsterdam), and a DAAD composer-in-residence in Berlin. Since 1997 he has been editor-in-chief of the Leonardo Music Journal. He is a Professor in the Department of Sound at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
