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.

Learning 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.

DIY area

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.

More to learn

In addition to the many workshops in which you can participate, there are also presentations and lectures in which there is nothing less to learn. Alec Empire and Nex show Unplug and disconnect: The musical story of the many victims of modern surveillance – how surveillance technology is used to harm and silence journalists, activists and dissidents. Alec and Nex will present audio and visual representations of the spyware used by governments. To find out more follow the link. Or explore the many DIY workshops that are offered by different manufacturers like Befaco, LeafAudio, Random*Source, Birdkids and more. Some exhibitors are also planning workshops and presentations with their latest products. Keep an eye on the program and announcements during the event.

Alissa DeRubeis and Yasi Perera – experimental live performance @SUPERBOOTH17

Alissa DeRubeis and Yasi Perera played an experimental (modular) live set at SUPERBOOTH17. Their performance is called “Quite Eyes of Air” and is described as “wake up music, for when youwakeup.”

Using a modular Synthesizer, vocal elements, samples and noise, they create an experimental sound collage – and a world of their own.

Alissa is a founder of the Portland S1 Synth Library, that will also open a venue in Prague! The Portland Synth Library was created in Spring 2016 in partnership with 4MS Company. It is a unique resource for hands-on access to modular synthesizers and other electronic musical instruments for people of all experience levels. They regularly offer introductory courses for all interested individuals. Alissa will also offer special daily introductory workshops on the usage of modular synthesizers at SUPERBOOTH18 for women and non-binary.

 

 

 

Video: The SOOPERtalk 2 @SUPERBOOTH17

This is the panel discussion from day 2 at SUPERBOOTH17, it features some very special guests, Andi & Hannes Teichmann, Holly Herndon, Alissa DeRubeis, Alec Empire and the moderator of the evening Jens Uthoff. This SOOPERtalk was about the motivation to make music and it is trying to find out why people are becoming musicians, although this is no easy way to live your life.

On one side electronic music and club culture are mainstream – their identity-establishing media channels are in the hands of global energy drink and telecommunications companies and DJ’s and festivals are multi-million dollar business. In many top cities, such as Berlin, Club culture, serves as a marketing tool to utilize as a touristic poster child or advertisement for tourism and culture.

On the other side, there is a strong foundation in electronic music and club culture that continues through a different and alternative approach. In this musical field there is an innovative scene where development of the music and scene is influenced through its improvisational rooms, experimentation, concerts, soldering irons, synthesizers and solitary hours with music and technology.

 

What is driving people to take this artistic route? What is their motivation? How does one see the forest for the trees? What do artistic musicians mean to society, where do they see themselves and what can they give society? What space or room is left or open for new social and artistic visions? There are certainly easier ways to make money. In this discussion the possibilities should come to light with Club Culture acting as the bridge between culture and society.
