Contact Microphones respond to vibrations through physical surfaces and translate that motion into sound. Contact mics can be used to capture various sounds such as a heart beat, the sound of pencil on paper, or vibrations from a musical instrument. These mics are cheap, easy to build, and can be a source for fun and experimental ways of creating new sounds for radio, installations or performances. For this workshop, Stephen Kelly and Eleanor King will facilitate making simple yet effective contact microphones from singing greeting cards. Each person will take home their own contact microphone, no experience in electronics required.
