February 7th 2009 2PM+: The Ghost and the Leech with Martin Kuentz

A new horizon has been opened, outdating the separation of
transmission and reception that had been forced upon electronic media.

[Tetsuo Kogawa]

The Ghost and the Leech actively explores alternative radio
constructions, ranging from powerful transmission devices (1W+ FM),
which can well extend the range of personal broadcast, through the
psychophone [Franz Seidl] for time/space dislocation, to simple
parasitic gadgets, harvesting power from radio waves
[fernsehturm]. Participants will construct a selected device, gaining
knowledge of simple principles and methodologies.

The workshop proposes an imagination which extends beyond "free
radio", "natural radio"; an inserted ghost question for polymorphous
radio prosumers, Berlin's new Raketenmensch ["live forever, in a
clean, honest, purified Electroworld"]. 

Workshop fee: 10 euros [all parts and food]

Please email m at 1010.co.uk to reserve a place.





Workshops led by field-expert practitioners extend over realms of code
and embedded code, environmental code, noise, transmission and
reception, and electromysticism. Workshops solely utilise free
software and GNU toolbase.
