Elaphon – œil symphatique Workshop at SchneidersLaden

We are happy to announce a very special workshop event on 21. March. We get a visit from Elaphon from Leipzig, Germany, who are building a special kind of acoustic resonator. We will get to see a presentation about the Œil Sympathique and – of course – we’ll also hear a performance!

Œil Sympathique from Elaphon

The electro-acoustic resonator Œil Sympathique from Elaphon is a coupling of an acoustic sound object with resonance strings and a loudspeaker. It is designed for the reproduction of electronic sound sources.

The resonance body of the Œil Sympathique serves as a non-linear membrane for the loudspeaker, producing a sound full of wood and character. At the same time, the Sympathique strings are stimulated to resonate and add a natural overtone spectrum to the electronic sound material. The highlight – only the strings whose tone is actually played resonate. This creates the original sound of the Œil Sympathique – a non-linear loudspeaker that adds body and velvet to electronic sounds – wood, sustain and a natural overtone spectrum.

Acoustic resonators are coming into focus of more and more musicians during the past couple of years. The most prominent example might be Hans Zimmer who used several resonators for the soundtrack and audio effects of the new DUNE film.

Come by and experience the special sound of wooden resonators, get inspired by the makers of this sophisticated tool.

Join us Thursday 21. March at 6pm – SchneidersLaden, Kottbusser Tor!

The event is free and there is no need for a  reservation!
