Workshop: May 5, 11:30 – 14:00
Theatermaschine – Stage interfaces with Arduino and Teensy Audio Shield Part 1
Georg Werner
6 Participants

Who is addressed:
Anybody curious in building cost efficient interfaces for performing needs.

What you’ll learn:
What are the basic interface possibillities of Arduino and Teensy Audio Shield in stage settings? If you want to deepen the knowledge from this workshop, please come to „Part 2“ on Friday, 6th May to continue!

“Theatermaschine” illuminates the question, in what way lighting or sound effects on a stage can be triggered by performers through sensors. As part of this workshop, participants can discover a variety of ways doing this, experiment with different set-ups and put their own ideas into practice. This workshop teaches the basics of Arduino together with DMX as well as with the Teensy Audio Shield.

Georg Werner, born 1980 in Dresden, and on the search for sounds and ways of making them ever since. Obtained a degree in cultural studies and aesthetic practice at the University of Hildesheim, studied experimental media design at the UDK Berlin and was a master student in sound art with Ulrich Eller at the HBK Braunschweig. As of 2007, he has been teaching courses on issues concerning sound art, sound installation and integrating technological artefacts into art-related contexts. Furthermore, he continues to work with various theatre groups. His work is characterised by the use of found objects and spaces, which he modifies in such a way that they create greater awareness and provide unexpected perspectives.
