Square Waves for Beginners

In conjunction with the Prometheus and Pandora puppet show, a hands-on workshop on building your very own square wave generating audio device.

Taught by Silent G and the Logic (of the Resistance) and Mark Allen (Director, Machine Project), this four-hour workshop will cover the following in a shockingly intense four-hour session — the basic physics of sound and electricity, using a 555 timer to create an adjustable oscillator, how to prototype a circuit on a bread board, how to amplify a line level signal using inexpensive computer speakers, soldering, and keeping a calm positive mental attitude under intense pressure.

No experience with electronics needed or even recommended.
