What: A full day of synthesizer fun!

Open Lab Time is an NCMC organized event that aims to open up the instrument design process to be more inclusive. In this informal session, we’ll be experimenting with vactrols for a low pass gate design. No idea what any of that means? No problem – we’ll all learn from each other! We’ll have parts and breadboards and whiteboards. You supply the curiosity, questions, and ideas. Together, we’ll see if we can design some instruments, or at least learn more about how they’re designed!

Later that same day, the University of Michigan’s Department of Performing Arts Technology is hosting synth legend Suzanne Ciani for a free masterclass and performance (free, but seats are limited). See the flyer below for more details. We’re planning to get a group together to attend the class & performance.
