HOLOFUNK WORKSHOP WITH ROB JELLINGHAUS

Holofunk is an audiovisual, gesturally controlled VST plugin-hosting live looper. This means it can handle any VSTs you throw it and it lets you control them with your movement!

Holofunk lets you spontaneously and improvisationally create music, that you can directly see and manipulate as you create it. It feels something like finger painting with sound. Holofunk supports two players, two-handed fully ambidextrous control, and multi-hand gesturing.

This workshop will consist of a demo that will be both an improvised performance and a presentation.

In this workshop, Rob will be covering:

+ What exactly is Holofunk?
+ How the interface works and why
+ How he built it
+ The evolution of Holofunk over the last eight years
+ What he’s learned about live performance-focused software
+ What is next for the concept (mainly, actual mixed reality)

Following the performance/presentation, Holofunk will be available for attendees to try out themselves!

WAVEFORM MAGAZINE DIY SOLDERING WORKSHOP:
GATEWAY OSCILLOSCOPE

In this workshop we will make Waveform issue #2's DIY "Gateway Oscilloscope" project where we take an inexpensive and readily available oscilloscope and convert it to be used in a Eurorack system.

First, we will finish assembly of the oscilloscope [the surface mount components [SMDs] come already soldered by the manufacturer], by installing through hole resistors, diodes, electrolytic capacitors, and other components. We will measure the values of each resistor with a multi-meter to ensure proper installation. Once the oscilloscope is built and tested, we will assemble the Waveform designed circuit board which will convert the +12V supplied by Eurorack power into the +5V that the oscilloscope requires and runs on, and solder that into place, wiring it up to the oscilloscope.

Eventually we will put everything together, and mount it on the black matte/copper "Gateway Oscilloscope" PCB faceplate. You will leave the workshop with a functioning Waveform "Gateway Oscilloscope" for your setup!

Seats will be limited, so be sure to get your tickets before it's full up!

This event is hosted at Patchwerks.

Facebook invite and ticket link coming soon!
