How do we go about making machines for musical expression after the end of the computer as we know it? In this workshop, we will work fast with non technological material, to build machines for making sound.

These ideas are about technology but not of technology, instead you will build non-functional instruments aimed at inventing the music machine that will produce that sound from beyond.

Our starting point is the experience of playing and we will spend the afternoon making the (idea of the) perfect machine or instrument for this.
