Build Your Own Microphonic Soundbox

Get introduced to the world of instrument making with LEAF Audio’s Microphonic Soundbox.

The Microphonic Soundbox is a fun, experimental electroacoustic instrument in a wooden box which perfectly integrates within any audio setup and creates interesting and otherworldly soundscapes. It comes prepared with metal springs, metal rods, sandpaper and a kalimba but can easily be extended with any other found materials. It can be played in many ways by scratching, bowing, knocking etc. to create totally unique sounds.

Of course you get to keep the Microphonic Soundbox you build. The workshop has a 100% functional guarantee. If your machine does not work, LEAF Audio will replace it in the workshop. Besides building the box, part of the workshop will be a demonstration of using the Microphonic Soundbox with a custom-made Ableton setup including loopers and effects.

This workshop has additional materials fee of 115€ per participant – to be paid in cash during the workshop. 


Workshops are for small groups and require pre-registration. Workshops are only accessible if you have a ticket which includes access to the Workshops and Studio Sessions program – for information, check the FAQ. Registration is now open.
