The Noise Upstairs have finalised details for the next in our series of free workshops.
This one’s going to be brilliant, Rodrigo Constanzo will be taking us through building a couple of home-made instruments, on the first session (Sun 9 May 7pm – THIS WEEKEND) we’ll be experimenting with a contact mic-based instrument, and for the second session (Sun 30 May 2pm) we’ll be doing a string-based ‘third-bridge guitar’ one. They are both suitable for beginners to DIY and have scope to develop and go beyond the basic for those “more abled” students… :-)
You’ll need a certain amount of materials, so head to www.thenoiseupstairs.com and click on the “Workshops” tab for all the details.
If all this sounds intriguing, then e-mail workshops@ thenoiseupstairs.com to sign up for one or both of the sessions.
9 May (7pm), 30 May (2pm)
Fuel Cafe Bar
See you there!
Anton & Rodrigo
