Ubercycle Revisionists build instruments from recycled materials to both perform on and provide opportunities for the community to explore and experiment with. Build your own mini washtub bass instrument from a coffee can. This low volume, mellow instrument is a great way to discover the physics of sound and is an easy way to learn how to find notes by ear. Other audio found object sculptures will be on hand to experiment with. Workshop ends with a performance by students with the band Ubercycle Revisionists using audio sculptures made from found objects.
