Acoustically Active Augmented Instruments is a workshop at the crossroads of the physical and the digital, bridging musical instrument craftsmanship, acoustics, signal processing and physical computing in order to create hybrid instruments. The workshop aim's is to offer an insight into the augmentation of acoustic stringed instruments with active acoustics - i.e. audio transducers exciting the instrument's physical structure. Gestural input devices will be explored in order to build a control channel for the instruments' electronic layer and different pickup technologies explored.

Note: The participants are invited to bring instruments to be augmented. However, this is not a strict requirement, and we can find workarounds.
