We are pleased to host guest sound artist Daniel Fishkin at Antioch College! Daniel will give a two-part workshop for students and community members on building solar-powered electronic instruments. This workshop will teach students how to solder musical circuits and build sturdy wooden enclosures for the instruments. This consists of two work sessions and a musical session. Full participation means you will leave with your very own solar musical creature!

Part 2 – Afternoon carpentry session Friday May 3rd, 12:30pm – 3:30pm

Solar Sounder Workshop (work samples)
In this workshop, we will build musical circuits with circuit boards, wires, solarpanels, and wood. A Solar Sounder is a synthesizer played by sunlight. It works opposite from just about every other circuit you might encounter. A Solar Sounder has no batteries, and no knobs; instead, its speaker output is governed by sunlight, powering an internal synthesizer that is designed to work with ever-fluctuating power source. These instruments live outdoors and their sound changes as the shadows of daylight creep along their solar panels.
