Workshops

DIY Instrument Design with Kate Stone and Pana Li

In this Workshop, attendees will learn how to design and build their own electronic instrument or music interface with Dr. Kate Stone – founder of Novalia and Diana Castro – founder of Magic Objects.

Novalia is a company that uses ordinary printing presses to manufacture interactive electronics using printable conductive ink. Magic Objects is a design label of paper goods. 

Attendees will design and cut out their own instruments in regular paper, then apply touch stickers and lines of conductive ink to wire up the design. They will then load their own sound files to it, play it through built-in speakers or the line output or use the Bluetooth Kit to connect to an iOS device or a Mac computer with Ableton Live, and use it as a custom controller.

Please note that this workshop requires payment of an additional $25 material fee. Registrants will be contacted directly for online pre-payment.

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 will open on October 16.
