Workshop with Wolfgang Spahn

Within this workshop we worked with the Pop Neuron designed by Christian Faubel and Wolfgang Spahn. Basically an electronic analogue artificial network that once connected interact. We got the schematic and all the components, even the printed board to the Pop Neuron. We built two together and then connected to the others. Once all of our pieces where built we were able to make a concert, a very noisy one. The structure and pattern of the sound would be interfered by any movement on any of the components. They were reading and reacting to each other. At some points the repetitiveness of the sound was pleasant and then randomly high pitched noise would appear.

It was my very first time building such a thing. The experience was great. My very first time soldering. Visually it was interesting the mixture of materials and the little blinking of Leds.
