Want to get away and dedicate some time to Synth DIY, talking electronic music craft, and electronic music shows? North Coast Modular Collective is partnering with TinkerTech and Riverside Arts Center to bring you a full day of making and music!
Down for some Sumer Camp Synth DIY? Drop by the TinkerTech maker space from 1 to 5 pm. You can be one of the first to solder up the new 2hp Flint Fader or make a Lodi Mult.
Workstations and kits are included in the registration, so just bring yourself! Even if you’ve never made a module, but have been interested in getting started, this is the perfect low-pressure learning environment to do it! We’ll have live and DJ’d electronic music and plenty of time and space to hang out and chat.
July 13th, 7-10pm at Riverside Arts Center Lineup coming soon! After a day of building, walk down to Riverside Arts Center and grab a show with plenty of electronic music. You’ll have a chance to meet and chat with the artists.

Around the room updates (shout out any opportunities, projects, etc.)
Our March Meetup generated some great ideas for upcoming topics. Since the June meetup will be held in a software factory, we thought it would be fitting to have the theme be “programming”. We’re applying some creative license to the interpretation of this theme, so you could see presentations or show-and-tells on anything from programming beats and melodies (sequencing) to DSP (Digital Signal Processing). Details will come soon, stay tuned! Comment below if you have other future topic suggestions, or ideas for presentations (including your own presentation or show-and-tell!).
