INPUT #11 Workshop w/ Dirty electronics & Max Wainwright

Radical Chip Party

Dirty Electronics & Max Wainwright present the Radical Chip. Build a standalone DIY circuit for the chip and customize the code; and devise a noise intervention for the gallery. The Radical Chip is an ongoing collaboration between the duo exploring Microcomputer Music: a music made from mini microprocessors and raw electronics that is always in-flux, noisy and may be overwritten. The Radical Chip was originally designed for the Mute Synth 4.0 – Dirty Electronics’ third release with Mute Records. The party will terminate with a set blasted from DIY cardboard box amps and speakers. Expect full-blown overflow aesthetics with minimal resources and maximum amplitude.

John Richards

Explores the idea of Dirty Electronics that focuses on shared experiences, ritual, gesture, touch and social interaction. He is primarily concerned with the performance of large-group electronic music and DIY electronics, and the idea of creating music inside electronics. His work also pushes the boundaries between performance art, electronics, and graphic design and is transdisciplinary as well as having a socio-political dimension. Dirty Electronics has been commissioned to create sound devices for various arts organisations and festivals and has released a series of hand-held synths on Mute Records.

Max Wainwright

Makes experimental electronic and acoustic music, involving free improvisation, adapting to complex systems, and making & using terrible instruments. He does solo and collaborative performances, installations, sculpture, radio pieces, chamber composition, video work and more. As an artist, he is concerned with states of flux and how useless or broken objects can be sounded. He likes to engage audiences
and things in conversation, creating instruments, trading, donating or receiving things, and performing on these. Using these, he explores human-technology interaction, deconstructing live performance, futility and effort, and performing through inactivity.
