IN THE LOUD LAB WITH DAVID ERIK NELSON
August 23, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$10 - $15
This family workshop is for adults and children ages 6 and up. David Erik Nelson is the award-winning science-fiction author of Junkyard Jam Band: DIY Musical Instruments and Noisemakers. His easy-to-make and fun-to-play musical instruments projects have been featured in MAKE, Performer, and Guitar World magazines. Nelson will demonstrate how to make a variety of musical instruments with common household materials. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to discover how horns, drums, and other noisemakers work, and explore the science of sound. Learn lots of ways to find the “good noise” in bits of wire, wood, plastic, electronics, and more. Amplify Slinkies and rubber bands, rock out on a single-string electric guitar and play with homemade synthesizers!
