Want to build your own synthesizer? This is your chance.! Science Friction have been developing small modular electronic instruments for the last few years and have developed an amazingly powerful, creative tool. Come build one, it is free to attend and does not require any experience (though we need to charge 500kr to cover the cost of the electronics if you build a synthesizer). This is a self-contained instrument that can be played alone, or programmed and encorporated into a broader hardware/software based setup.
CHEAP, FAT and OPEN (CFO) is an open source synthesizer, mixed with a stylophone, a gameboy, a circuit bent toy, and then some software too it is open source and designed to be OPEN and hackable, and therefore the project is inherently messy. you can do a lot of things with CFO, but CFO has a lot of limitations as well. that’s the beauty of it, go with the flow. this is NOT a finished product. many (most) things are still under development, so expect bugs! errors! glitches! — treat them as features 😉 or dig the code and change them for the better.
Synthspecs: Monophonic, 3 OSC with 8bit wavetable synthesis, FM, 2 Envelopes, digital filter
The workshop is free, but costs for the CFO synth which you get to keep = 500 NOK
The workshop will end with a collective jamsession, so feel free to bring equipment too!
Workshop from 12:00 to 17:00
with jamsession & pizza afterwords

The workshop is part of the project Sonic Game Space, supported by Art Counci Norway and Bergen kommune.
