Workshop Series
We are in the process of putting together a series of stand-alone workshops in electronic instrument making and interactive technologies. A few examples include making Custom Synthesisers, programming with Pure Data and building Midi Controllers. They will likely take place over a full day or weekend, and the cost will vary depending on the workshop.
More info coming soon.

Children & Young People
We are developing creative workshops for schools & youth groups, using electronics and digital technology with music and the arts.
The work from the Lab will also cross-over with Tinderbox’s other programmes, such as its youth orchestras, music hubs, and workshops in schools, hospitals and community settings.

Commissions, Exhibitions & Collaborations
We develop our own projects and are keen to work with other people and organisations to make and exhibit exciting new work in this area. Please get in touch if you are interested in working with us.

Some projects currently in development include:
– Bespoke digital instruments & hardware for Tinderbox Orchestra.
– VST / plugin of unusual orchestral sounds and effects for composers & producers.
– “Gloam in 5 Parts” – an interactive orchestral recording and original composition, in collaboration with Biome Collective.

Residency Projects
We are also keen to develop a residency programme at the Tinderbox lab in the future.
If you are interested in working with us on this, please let us know.
