HELENE VOGELSINGER

Her sound can be described as hypnotic and intense, in the field of cinematic ambient and electronic orchestral music. As a French artist, she uses exclusively modular synthesizers for her sound explorations and compositions. With this instrument of infinite possibilities, she immerses us in an ocean of sounds that put us in an altered state of consciousness.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

Repairing things yourself will become more important in the future. On the one hand, because developers and producers intentionally integrate errors and predetermined breaking points into products, so-called planned obsolescence. And on the other hand, raw materials are becoming increasingly scarce and thus more expensive. With the availability of open source software and 3D printers, this trend can be counteracted, in the spirit of the Repair Cafés: repair instead of throwing away!

METEORIT

Meteorite is an installation in which the video plane was mapped onto an object made of cardboard, measuring 200 x 105 x 45 cm. The video in the length of about 5 min was played by a DVD player in the loop module.

ELECTROMAGNETO PHONE

Priezor from + LOM + is an open-source passive antenna to make electromagnetic fields audible. It is very sensitive and detects low level events in the atmosphere. All electronic devices in the home or for outdoors, e.g. mobile phones, flat screens, sockets, etc. emit electromagnetic waves and sound very different. Which source sounds the most exciting to you? How can we explain the different volumes? And how do you perceive these devices now that you can hear them?

DIY MICROSCOPE

We take apart a disused webcam and turn the lens so that we get a macro lens. Then we build a stage from laser cutting parts and mount the modified webcam. In no time at all we have a wonderfully functioning DIY microscope, which invites you to dive into the wonderful world of the microcosm and document your discoveries directly on your computer.

TINKER TEC GIRLS

In this electronics and prototyping workshop we solder an amplifier and a simple synthesizer circuit. The housing is of laser cut wood, the knobs are made by 3D printer. Learning how to make things yourself is the goal.

KEYCHAINS

Creating a personalized keychain is a perfect task for beginners to learn a simple CAD software as well as the operation of the 3D printer. He becomes a powerful tool when you can easily draw your visions and bring them immediately into the physical world.

CHAOS AMP

There are two different circuits in two cubes connected with a cable. Chaos are two oscillating circuits that modulate each other. The pitch can be manipulated by a photoresistor (LDR), and the pulse width by a potentiometer. The second potentiometer is used to set the voltage that supplies current to the oscillating circuit. This allows you to create versatile and very interesting sound. The other circuit is a simple amplifier with a speaker.

We built these cubes in the + TINKER TEC GIRLS + workshop at HSLU. For more information klick the link below.

AUDIO LASER

This experiment investigates how audio can be transmitted through the air. The signal is overlapped with the laser beam (analog circuit) and then picked up by a solar panel. The solar panel is connected to a simple amplifier that drives a loudspeaker. Klick the link below to watch the video on Instagram.

COLLECT

What are the things I collect on my journey? Are they information, experiences and consciousness against entropy? Or am I collecting waves in quantum field, material to shape space and time? Under this heading I collect what inspires me. Inspired by + Frederick +.

RESONATE

You can’t teach competencies, you have to acquire them yourself. This is how I understand my task as teacher: to invite, inspire and support the participants in their projects. The main goal is to create an optimal learning environment for everyone and to tune them into their own frequencies so that an orchestra sounds.

COLABOR MODUL

Soundlab is one of the 24 +Colabor modules that offer the opportunity to practice other disciplines and media, reflect on design processes in depth and learn new methods. In this specific SoundLab module, students build an electronic instrument, explore its sonic universe, and share their results with others.

AUTARK

Under this heading, short stories on aesthetic research and current social issues are released. Always with the aim to inform, to show possibilities and alternatives. The reader should be taken on a journey, on which his mind opens for new things and changes.

SOLAR CV

These solar cells produce a voltage of 0-5 volts. These are very suitable to be used as control voltage (CV) in the Modular Synthesizer. For example, a changing light source can influence a filter (VCF), the pitch of an oscillator (VCO) or the volume of an amplifier (VCA). When an autonomous patch is influenced by external sensors, it is also called an interactive generative system.

Another possibility is to feed the solar cell directly into an audio amplifier. Then e.g. the frequencies of LED’s can be made audible. Click the link below to watch an example.

DARKLIGHT

This performance was staged in the school’s paint room, which smells strongly of oils and solvents. A video sampler was specially programmed for this purpose, which was produced in real time colored light and sound.

SPECTRAL

This video essay focuses on the topic of the creative processes and aesthetic research. Negotiating with the unconscious, the primordial soup, enduring the diffuse, the ephemeral, the doubts, getting lost, evolving yourself in search to find deeper connections. What is your passion or what are you struggling with?

DIGITAL MANUFACTURING

With 3D printers and digital production machines, we have arrived at production unit one. This means that parts are produced just in time and no longer in large quantities in stock. But it also means that we can break new ground in terms of production location, spare parts and production reliability.

SGNTR

The audio material of generative processes was processed for this purpose and compiled into 10 tracks. These ambient cinematic soundscapes are like an empty promise, have no beginning as well as no end.

DEVOUR

At this live performance, which lasted about 30 minutes, a contact microphone was attached to a fluorescent tube. The sound was processed with effects and mixed live with field recordings.

BUILDING BRIDGES

After theoretical input on the statics of bridges, participants develop a model bridge themselves, which is then exposed to a load test. The bridge consists of one or more modules made of cardboard, which are drawn with CAD software and cut with the laser.

PHASOR NOISE

This programmed generator produces both image and sound. The spacing of the stripe patterns is converted into sound. What we see is what we hear and vice versa.

BEAUTY ALGORITHM

We go in search of the beauty in algorithms and discuss what effect computer-generated images have on us, what is perceived as aesthetic and why. Can beauty be captured in a mathematical formula? To finde out that, students created sketches and ideas with pen and paper and do the final realization via a browser-based software called p5.js.
