Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This workshop will explore the craft of digital musical instrument design through a combination of discussion and a hands-on instrument design activity. Craft practice is central to the working process of both acoustic and digital instrument builders. Unlike the higher-level NIME design frameworks and taxonomies that appear in the literature, craft knowledge is often personal, subjective, and occasionally difficult to describe in writing. This workshop will call attention to this important aspect of instrument design and explore how it can be better disseminated and shared within the NIME community. Following an initial discussion, several identical digital instruments will be provided. Participants will work in groups to sculpt and fine-tune the subtle behavioural details of each instrument, comparing results at the end.
