Microphone Building Workshop with Ross Manning

DEADLINE : 14th October, 2:00 - 4:00pm

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 are $20.00 for IMA Members and $30.00 for Non-IMA Members. Tickets available through the Eventbrite link above.
