Explore the invisible phenomena around you and build your own wearable antenna receiver which can detect elektromagnetic fields and make them audible through electronic sounds.
In this hands on workshop we’ll start off with an introduction on electromagnetism and history of sound devices, costumes and processions, to give you some inspiration for your piece. Then you will build a little amplifier, which consists of an electronic circuit with a chip and a couple of electric components. This is a necessary part of the receiver, to amplify the signals deriving from the antenna, which will be build in the last part of the workshop. Every participant can choose their own materials and design, which leads to a unique sound for everyone.
The Radiesthetics workshop is developed in collaboration with Patrizia Ruthensteiner as a side-branch of ‘Magnetoceptia‘, a series of performances and installations based on wearable electro(magnetic)instruments.
