Paper speaker-making workshop at Studio XX

In the tradition of DIY practices, Studio XX presents an Electronic Arts directed research-creation workshop. The project is called “Nonstrument”, essentially the creation of a non-instrument: a hands-on workshop and online tutorial will offer participants the chance to build a wave oscillator and paper speakers. The workshop rethinks the concept of electronics using unusual materials like cardboard and copper tape. Participants will tinker with their own paper speaker in order to an ensemble, a musical quilt! The workshop will be led by artist Stephanie Castonguay.
