AlgoMech returns from 8-12 November 2017.

We're currently in the process of uploading and confirming our schedule, so there is little here in terms of confirmed artists and events.

Our preliminary programme will be released 1st August and full programme early September 2017. In the meantime you can have a look at last year's lineup, subscribe to our youtube channel, follow us on facebook or twitter, and add your email address to our mailing list.

All dates shown here are subject to change, with much more to be added. See you in November!

Workshop - Pulse and Patterns

Access Space
1pm-5pm, 10 Nov. 2017

A workshop lead by Ralf Schreiber and Christian Faubel, where participants will build small electro-mechanical solo drum machines from single DC motors and small circuit boards. The workshop will experiment with different kinds of sounding materials (metal pieces, stones, springs, paper, etc), where the machines will oscillate freely and develop their own individual sound quality. Once built the machines will be used to explore fundamental musical structures.

More details and registration details to follow.
