Diddley Bow Workshop, NIMHAF 2022

A how-to for making your own custom acoustic-tech ‘monochord’. Viewers are show how to select, combine and play materials. All tools are shown and techniques demonstrated. Various options to suit your very own build.

Barry’s approach is a akin to a recipe where he suggests potential ingredients, a step by step process (how & why), and even some serving suggestions.

Graham F – Halo

The latest TONEBURST release is available.

< kat no.27 >

Halo is a noir patchwork of generative soundmasses. Sonic elements rearrange themselves and unfold according to their own internal logic. Revealed are themes of alienation and anti-idealism.

Included is a DIY PCB of the EMF Pingler, a detector of invisible signals and ghosts. A noise device that picks up on its environment and makes sound when it is passed through electromagnetic fields (EMFs). The PCB itself features beautiful designs that make it a worthwhile trinket for those who may not want to solder.

As with all TB instrument and DIY PCB releases, if the EMF Pingler is used in your music-making please share the results with us. ‘Toneburst wishes to publish sound creations made by other makers.’
