EMS presents the first Synth DIY gathering this fall!
Anyone who is interested in building, modifying or repairing synthesizers and other devices is very welcome to join us. Don't expect tuition led by a teacher, but rather a forum where we learn from eachother. Nevertheless, we will organize lectures, workshops and DIY evenings for beginners and advanced builders alike, within the context of these get-togethers.
Jörgen Bergfors who is a prominent Swedish synth builder will hold a short talk on his AMORE scalable analog module concept and will answere your questions about his fabulous modular synths.
Feel free to bring you own constructions, drawings, sketches etc. Soldering-irons and ordinary tools can be borrowed on location. 
Any queries should be adressed to  . Write "DIY" in the subject line.
Wednesday the 28:th of September from 18:00-22:00 is our next date. Adress: EMS, Söder Mälarstrand 61, near T-bana Mariatorget, Stockholm

Jean-Philippe Antoine is a guest composer at EMS (August 2011). He is in Stockholm to work with Leif Elggren. Originally a teacher of theory of history of art and a visual artist, he has become more and more involved in sound art projects. His collaboration with Leif Elggren started with a lecture-performance about visual artist Marcel Broodthaers in which Leif's sounds and live mixing played an important part. Since then they have started working on more collaborative projects, one of which was issued 18 months ago as a 7" vinyl record on Leif's Label, Firework Edition.

Starts at 18:00

Quadraphonic, location-specific sound installations by Helene Hedsund, Girilal Baars, Boa Pettersson, Magnus Johansson and Eva Erbenius will be played in one of the rooms at Forsby Kvarn  . In April 2010, the EAM professional course went to Forsby kvarn carrying with them a selection of different types of microphones. Sound-engineer Agnieszka Lewalski, their teacher, guided them and demonstrated different recording techniques. The composers have all made different sound installations with the sounds they recorded: e.g. Helene used sounds from a saw blade and Eva used sounds recorded with a hydrophone.
