The DIY Chime creative workshop is designed to make a stand-alone electronic speaker, which is a redesigned copy of the Synchime sound. Synchime was made in the 1980s with the aim of acquiring electronic percussive sound. Synchime with an analog circuit generates a “metallic” sound similar to the sound of cymbals, bells, gongs, etc. It can also be tuned to make the sound look more like a membrane instrument or synthesizer.
The workshop enables the participants to be empowered with knowledge and skills for the independent production of any electronic device and for its possible further development. With such empowerment, it also brings the participant closer to the concept of the DIY method, which is a way of working to move away from a consumer-oriented society, while creating the ability to think creatively, which is a condition for any entrepreneurial idea. By acquiring a manufactured electronic instrument, the workshop also enriches the participant’s musical arrangement, which opens up new possibilities in the musical or. artistic creation.
The workshop is intended for high school students, students and the elderly and is free of charge. No prior knowledge or additional tools are required to participate. Due to the limited number of places, prior registration is required at: https://www.1ka.si/a/352322
