Electronics Faire: Listening to Electricity

Electronics Faire: Listening to Electricity

Listen to the electromagnetic specters of the Charles Library with your very own EMF electromagnetic induction coil. Tune into the electromagnetic sounds of the built environment! Join artists Jazmyn Crosby and Matt Parker on a tour of the machines of the Charles Library. In this workshop and listening tour you will build your very own coil-pickup electromagnetic inductor, grab a risograph printed map, some headphones, and head out into the library to discover the world of electromagnetic noise (EMF) that surrounds us. Hear the library like you have never heard it before! This workshop is suitable for anyone. Equipment will be provided but if you have your own wired headphones, we recommend you bring them along too.
