More of our regularly unregular video releases of Workshops and Performances from SUPERBOOTH, SchneidersLaden and SchneidersBuero. HerrSchneider invited Gammon to his new video studio in Berlin Kreuzberg, where the two talked about the ideas behind the Workshops Gammon held during SUPERBOOTH17.
These workshops were specifically designed for children. The participants were students from schools in Berlin Mitte and Neukölln. With 10 individually configured modular synthesizers the group was able to create different musical voices to interact and complement each other in a unique composition that can be heard in one of the following videos. Besides some technical aspects of the machines the children were working with, there was a strong focus on the parallels to natural sounding objects. These are a part of the wide range of sonic opportunities that can be found on modular synthesizers.
Gammon is planing to do a similar workshop in November, this time a 3-day workshop at DEFINE Festival in Sønderborg, Denmark. The concept for this workshop is to develop a Modular Synthesizer Ensemble with the participants and to be able to play a concert on the last day of the festival.
