Frank Story

Presenter

For three years Jon Ronson was the keyboard player with the Frank Sidebottom Band. Frank wore a big fake head. Nobody outside his inner circle knew his true identity. They toured the United Kingdom, playing to sell-out crowds in small venues. They rode high. And then it all went wrong... Now Jon presents a one-man show ''Frank Story'' telling the true story behind the new acclaimed fictionalized movie co written by him and starring Michael Fassbender and Maggie Gyllenhaal. This is a tribute to outsider artists too wonderfully strange to ever make it in the mainstream.








Designing a Digital Musical Instrument or Interface

Presenter

In this talk we will walk through the process of designing a unique musical instrument or interface. We will look at each designer's unique talents and incorporate these into our design, making performing with the instrument easier for the designer. For example, if one is an avid golfer we could incorporate a golf swing as a way to interface with an instrument. We will talk about the first steps of imagination, how to know what sensors to use, figuring out the electronics, and putting our original design together with the electronics. I will also talk about my process and demonstrate several instruments I've made.
