NIMEcraft Workshop: Exploring the Subtleties of Digital Lutherie
MetadataShow full item record
This half-day workshop will explore the craft of digital musical instrument design. 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 through a combination of discussion and a hands-on instrument design activity focused on sculpting the subtle behavioural details of an instrument. The workshop will also reflect on how craft knowledge can be better disseminated and shared in the NIME community.
