Tinderbox Lab Autumn Workshop Series

Over the next few months, we’re bringing visual and sonic artists from across the country to our studio in Custom House, Leith. There’s a vibrant mix of disciplines and a range of creative potentials and takeaways – something suitable for every level of experience.

To book a place on a workshop, click through the links below and you will be directed to the relevant Eventbrite page, or get in touch with us at lab@tinderboxcollective.org to ask about our season pass.

These workshops build on the success of our pilot workshop on Pure Data with Yann Seznec and our recent introduction to SuperCollider with Tom Mudd, which we hope to run again sometime.

Alternative Controllers and Pure Data with Ryan Scott – 19th October

We’ll be kicking things off with a workshop from Glasgow-based music technologist Ryan Scott. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to pair Pure Data with machine learning middleware extending musical control in exciting new ways!


Making Things Move with Jen Sykes – 9th November

Jen Sykes from Glasgow School of Art will be delivering a workshop involving micro-controllers, kinetic sculptures and electronics. This workshop will introduce you to a range of engaging, practical methods to operate and alter the behaviour of toys, mechanics and found objects.

An Introduction to TouchDesigner with Ray Interactive – 16th November – SOLD OUT

Sam and Brendan from Edinburgh-based art and design studio Ray Interactive will be giving an introduction to the versatile and creative visual programming environment TouchDesigner. If you ever wanted to make live-visuals for your music or enjoyed exploring jitter in Max MSP then you’ll get a lot out of TouchDesigner.


Mechanical Techno with Graham Dunning – 13th December

Finally, we have London-based artist and musician Graham Dunning whose unique approach to music-making, which he describes as, ‘Mechanical Techno’, involves hacking old records, building a physical sequencer triggering modular synths. In this workshop, you’ll get the chance to build a Mechanical Techno setup and record your own inimitable dance track.
