Upcoming Events

CMKT 4 Contact Mic Workshop

Host: Michelle May 6th, 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

  • Join the members of the circuit-bent rock band CMKT4 for a workshop on building your very own EconoMIC Bottle Cap Contact Microphone (from Creme DeMentia). CMKT4 will show you how to solder up a piezo-electric pickup and house it sturdily in a recycled bottle-cap housing of their own design! Stick around for a set from the band as the tool-handle dip on your freshly built contact microphone dries. Additional take-home kits and other surprises will be available, come build a mic and see and hear some of the circuit-bent instruments you've read about on www.GetLofi.com up close. Bring your own instruments and objects to amplify!

The workshop is $15, additional kits will be on sale for $10, and we'll have fully assembled mics in several varieties for sale as well. We'll have some other fun goodies also. Interested onlookers are encouraged to donate if they don't want to build a kit.

CMKT 4 are Austin Cliffe, Zach Adams, and Jeff Cox. The circuit-bent /rock trio has made it their mission to leave no hackerspace behind on their way to their next Maker Faire; they want to bring new devices, sounds, and ideas to your town. They are constantly working to make new and interesting devices and music.
