Driven by an enlightening first encounter with electromagnetism and its enormous potential as an engine for sound generation and physical automation, Daniele De Santis' GRÜN project is all about composing electronic music by ways of electrical circuit design. At the project’s core thus lies the constant research into the development of sound synthesis modules by way of recycling old electronic components, which makes GRÜN also a project about the idea of a more environmentally sustainable electronic music production.
Focusing on electromagnetism as an expression of life, the Homegrown workshop introduces into fundamental principles underlying electro-acoustics and circuit electronics while unveiling the philosophical and physical elements that inform GRÜN's machines.
An explanation of the most common electronic components and integrated circuits will provide the theoretical knowledge to comprehend the working principles of an oscillating circuit. On a practical level, the workshop will allow participants to assemble their own oscillators as a first step for further experimentation.
