Bebe is a two oscillators sound generator
5 steps gate sequencer/LFO. Sound generation comes from a 4093 CMOS chip and the sequencer is
an ATtiny84 MCU. It's eurorack compatible, the two oscillators have CV/GATE inputs and the sequencer
clock out (hackable as clock in) and two gate outputs.
This workshop has been committed by the Conservatorio
della Svizzera italiana. The name is a tribute to Bebe Barron, pioneer in the field of
Hidden Sound Explorer
Hidden Sound Explorer is a circuit
transduces the electromagnetic fields, produced by the electronic devices that surround us, into sounds
listened through earphones. It amplifies the electrical signal of a coil connected to the input, a
A piezoelectric disc (contact microphone) can also be connected to the input terminals to explore the
micro-sounds that are normally inaudible.
A piezoelectric transducer can be used as a contact microphone. It works by being in direct contact with
object. The mechanical vibrations that affect the object are converted to electrical signal
that can be amplified though a power amplifier.
This workshop can be considered an introduction to the tin soldering technique in which the participants
their own contact microphone.
