During SUPERBOOTH19 there will again be dozens of different workshops in the areas of synthesizers, modular, DIY and more. Besides Gammon’s Modular Synthesizer Ensemble, about which you can learn more here, there are various ways to learn in a wide range of topics – from the basics of technical construction of electronic instruments and DIY to learning modular synthesis.
One example are the workshops of experienced synthesizer expert Alissa DeRubeis, who is working for 4ms and the Synth Library. During SUPERBOOTH18 she gave workshops for female and non-binary guests to enable this group of participants to have their own beginner experiences. At least during the educational Saturday we will be able to offer this again, please note the program for the slots on the other days and all other workshops.
The DIY area is an important part of every Superbooth. Each day of SUPERBOOTH19 several workshops of different manufacturers are planned. In this video Manu von Befaco talks about his experiences with DIY workshops at SUPERBOOTH18. He gives a good overview of the range of workshops – they are suitable for absolute beginners and advanced users. The DIY area will again bring electronics closer to the audience and show how they are assembled to form an instrument.
