Fluxmonkey/bbob offers introductory workshops on building basic electronic
music circuits. Hands-on sessions introduce basic concepts of electricity/electronics
through simple projects, starting with primitive noise-makes and progressing
through basic building blocks like oscillators and filters. Emphasis is
on simple gizmos that allow for immediate sound-making, rather than rigorous
engineering theory. We also encourage playing (messing with the
circuitry, as well as performing), hence the name "playshop".
Appropriate for teens or adults, sessions can be customized to your needs/audience.

from previous sessions provides step-by-step instructions for some
of our projects. Tinkerers and experimenters can use these as reference,
or refer to these detailed step-by-step instruction sheets:
Many of the later projects are based on Nicholas
Collins' excellent book Handmade
Electronic Music: The Art of Hardware Hacking, which we
heartily recommend. During workshops we use a solderless breadboard, but
we also sell a PCB (the Looney Board),
which provides a more robust way to build permanent versions of the circuits
you develop in workshop.
