As part of the British Council UK-RUSSIA Year of Music trip to Moscow, I delivered a ‘Synth-making and e-textiles’ workshop at the SA)) Studios run by the Sound Artist Community in Moscow. The day was lots of fun, and participants went away with a soft toy that made lots of different noise, controlled by a combination of light sensors and electronic textiles. This workshop was devised with PRRRRRT! collective from Bristol, which is a collaboration with Becca Rose Glowacki and Jasmine Butt. Many thanks to SA)) Community for hosting the workshop and especially to Vitalina Kolemagina for organising it. Thanks to the British Council for supporting this trip.
