Enrollment limited: advance sign up required (see contact below)
Signup by: 21-Jan-2009

Single session event
Prereq: Peruse Drawdio.com, soldering interest (but not experience)
Fee: 20.00 for the circuit parts
Imagine you could draw musical instruments on normal paper with any pencil (cheap circuit thumb-tacked on) and then play them with your finger. The Drawdio circuit-craft lets you MacGuyver your everyday objects into musical instruments: paintbrushes, macaroni, trees, grandpa, even the kitchen sink...
We will each solder a Drawdio circuit, or a mod. or hack of one. Please bring a soldering iron if you have one. Then we will improvise instruments and jam on them. Finally, we'll create documentation in the form of an instructable, a picture, or an audio sample.
YOU GET TO KEEP THE DRAWDIO CIRCUIT (that's why it costs $20 to participate, if you really can't pay for financial reasons but are serious about wanting to come write me an email firstname.lastname@example.org). Other facilitators are Noah Vawter and Eric Rosenbaum
