Laoban Speaker Workshop

Laoban Speaker Workshop + Overlap Salon Melbourne – Jon Phillips

Laoban Speaker Workshop is a small hands-on session dedicated to making custom Xiaoban speakers from local materials in Melbourne, combined with Laoban speaker drivers. The emphasis in this event is not just on technology, but on the use of these speakers through “realtime” performance, pre-programmed audio pieces by Yan Jun (China), and throughout The Invisible Generation event for Vision Forum.

The Laoban Speaker Workshop is at the Faculty of the VCA and Music, School of Art Auditorium from noon until 6 PM on Saturday, September 12.

We will be creating custom open speakers using available materials from Creative Commons licensed plans and instructions.
Overlap Salon Melbourne on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 Loop, 6-8.30pm 23 Meyers Pl, Melbourne VIC 3000, (03) 9654 0500
