Interview with Jiří Suchánek – Experimental Music Instruments Workshop
The musical workshop for children was focused on creating experimental musical instruments made out of found material and objects, simple motors and contact piezo “mics” that offer a wide scale of use in sound art, field recording, sound installations or recording sounds of objects. Using a hammer, a saw or a screwdriver the everyday objects turned into unconventional musical instruments that were sounded and used to create music. Every participant created their own piezo sensor and connected a motor with a speed controller. We were soldering, drilling, screwing, cutting, connecting, listening, recording and playing! Here is the result
The artist, musician and pedagogue at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Technical University in Brno Jiří Suchánek specializes on audiovisual installations in public spaces and galleries and experimental music in his work. He creates his own hardware and software instruments for his music.
