Steffen Koritsch a.k.a noisio is an artist, musician, electronics engineer and programmer. Having fun with mistakes and previously unknown features, he discovers new sounds, designs synthesizer soldering kits for everyone and takes them on workshop and concert tour.

On this afternoon noisio will take you into the world of his curious 8-bit machines. Everyone can solder one of the synths or just come along for a talk. Even very beginners will be able to build their first electronic instrument. You can get kits from 25 CHF like the Photonotron OptoTheremin, or for a little bit higer prizes the more advanced boards.

We are offering the DIY kits for a material cost according to noisio prize list, and are additionally asking for a workshop mentor support as a free prizing model (20-80 CHF) to cover his travel and fee. Payment on site in Cash or Twint. Thanks!!!
