Antonio Quiroga Waldthaler | WORKSHOP
From e-Waste to Sound Device
During this workshop you will learn how to turn parts of e-waste and trash into functional sound devices. Through the vivisection of dead media devices you will learn how to extract valuable components (like motors, VU meters and raw materials) and reuse them in order to build a new, idiosyncratic instrument. We will build electronic gadgets powered through alternative and ecologically sustainable methods. The idea is to get a better understanding of new media through the excavation of the old and “obsolete”.
