Upcoming at Machine Project
Come join Secret Restaurant’s Bob Dornberger, to learn how to make your own miso in a hands-on workshop that demystifies the fermented soybean product. Participants will learn how rice innoculated with the mold Aspergillus Oryzae turns soybeans into a versatile umami-rich food. The class will make a batch of shiro (white) miso, that matures over a period of a few weeks. You will also learn how to make shio-koji, an enzyme rich seasoning agent that can be used to make pickles, season dishes and much more. Participants will take home a kit of all the ingredients needed to make their own miso at home, as well as discover the most unusual application for miso you could possible imagine.
In preparation for LACMA’s Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, East of Borneo is hosting Train the Trainer, Monday at Machine Project. This two hour session will help prepare facilitators and volunteers who plan to participate in the upcoming Edit-A-Thon, so they can better support new Wikipedians. You do not need experience to participate in this workshop, but space is limited so be sure to RSVP.
In continuing Machine Project’s commitment to only present experimental analog-synth musicians, analog synth designer and musician Peter Blasser is coming to Machine to present new and old synthesizers, such as the Tocante touchers, Shbobo squishers, and a Deerhorn Organ. Ezra Buchla and Sejayno will also be in attendance, assisting in overture and recitative.
Come join Jet Propulsion Laboratory engineers Charles Dandino and Alex Bielawiec, as we learn to master the art of LED bike wheel animation. We’ll learn how to wire and install the LEDs to our spokes, then using Arduino microcontrollers we will time the blinking of the LEDs to the spinning of our wheels, allowing for elaborate and beautiful LED animations. No experience is necessary, this event is open to ages 14+.
